This is a draft message
When I receive e-mails, the messages appear with the following message "This is a draft message". When I attempt to answer that e-mail, a copy of my reply e-mail appears in my inbox. Why is this happening? How can I solve this problem? Thank you for any help.

usually such issues are caused by the "drafts" setting in "account settings" being incorrectly set to a folder other than drafts.
hi mcaldwell11, as a start, I think it has to do with your server settings for the Drafts folder,
Below support/bug articles indicates that you may have directed Drafts to your Inbox. Suggest you have a look at (Tools or Preferences) -> Accounts Settings -> Copies and Folders -> Drafts and Templates. Settings should not point to your "Inbox" (this I think could only be done in the user interface by manually overriding the system setting "Drafts Folder on:" and instead using/setting "Other":).
I was able to find
- a MozillaZine support article related to where sent messages are marked "this is a draft message" , so slightly different, but sound to me similar issue and solution to be sought, also worth considering depending on whether IMAP or POP and whether you are using unified inbox (aka Global Inbox), support article All SENT are marked "this is a draft message" - Why?, and, if you do have Global Inbox, have a look at Global Inbox
- a bug report about exactly the same matter, which indicates that you may have set your draft to inbox, have a look at All Incoming Messages marked "This is a draft message" when drafts folder is set to Inbox.
All the best from Stockholm.
Have a look at the folder in which you are receiving emails that are automatically labelled as drafts. If that folder is a subfolder of the actual drafts folder, then move that folder so it is no longer a subfolder of the drafts folder.
