    You must of switched to Exchange. One of the bugs Google lists is with the Drafts folder not being recognized. You can't remove this folder since it is a standard system folder. Also, it is always on the Gmail website but you may have it set to hidden. When you type a email on the Gmail website, it autosaves the email into the drafts folder until you send it.

    I had a sent folder just no drafts because it was not yet supported. Try to delete and re-add the account.

    The drafts folder is shown as a normal folder (aka label) and isn't recognized by the iPhone Mail app as a "drafts" folder. So if you save a draft on the iPhone, it will create a local drafts folder. All it really means is you can't start a draft on your iPhone and then see/edit it on the Gmail website.
