In ~/.authinfo commenting out the smtp server part.  Then

emacs -Q

GNU Emacs 28.0.60 (build 2, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2021-10-19

(setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it
      smtpmail-smtp-service  587 ; 2018-03-05 465 for ssl;  587 for starttls; 
1&1: 587 and 465
      smtpmail-smtp-user ""
      smtpmail-smtp-server "")

(setq gnus-select-method '(nntp "")
        (nnimap "1und1"
                (nnimap-address "")
                                        ;(nnimap-server-port "143") ;starttls
        (nnmbox "")

M-x gnus (I'm able to read the news).

Starting a message buffer (with m) and saving it with C-x C-s.

Went to the nndraft:drafts summary and typed Ds over the draft:

Sending message 1 of 1...
Sending via mail...
smtpmail-send-it: Sending failed: 550-Requested action not taken: mailbox 
550 Authentication required

At this stage I'm closing Emacs with C-x C-c.

Emacs is asking me if I want to save the draft (which was saved before,
has it changed?), I refuse with typing n.

Emacs is shutting down.

After reopening Emacs I've got my additional clone of the draft.

Hope that helps and thanks for your interest
