How do I stop Mail.app from keeping tons of snapshots of drafts as I type?

    I have Mail.app set up to sync with my Gmail account. I am using IMAP. When I type a message in Mail.app, Mail.app automatically saves the message to the Drafts. This is fine, but if I type another sentence or so, Mail.app will save another Draft, and not rewrite the older draft. My Draft mailbox is huge, and is basically useless, because I have to search for the most recent version of a message. How can I stop this from happening and have Drafts behave normally?

    I have the same issue right now, i wish there was a way to fix this. It only happens if I am writing a long e-mail from Apple mail and have the message open for a long time. I just wrote an e-mail that took about ten minutes and then I checked the conversation in Gmail, there were 63 saved versions of that one e-mail! Ridiculous.
