Quickly access saved drafts in iOS Mail iOS devices
Accessing your saved email drafts can be challenging when you have multiple email accounts on your iOS device. Here's a shortcut though to help save you some time.

1. Launch the Mail app.
2. Tap and hold the compose icon at the bottom right of the screen.
3. You will see a Drafts screen, where you can either compose a new message or continue editing saved drafts.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Now does someone know how to get to trash quickly. I frequently accidentally trash an email because the button is next to the Home button. Bad GUI or clumsy operator.

It might be useful to note that this is iOS 6 only...

Great hint! I'll just add that you can also swipe any draft in the list to delete it.

Nice tip except there is a difference between the iPhone and iPad. While the button in step 2 is bottom right on the iPhone, it's placement is TOP right on the iPad.
