Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: evolution

Evolution has a problem if an image or the folder of the image contains
a space in the name. The image is not stored when the message is saved
as a draft, and the image is not send.

This is only a problem if the image is placed in the message. Those
images as an attachment is no problem.

To test it: Create a file like: "test test.jpg" or jpg files in a folder
with a space, like: "test test". Start a new e-mail message, add those
jpg files in the message. You can send it ofcourse, or you can save it
as a draft, en see how it looks in the Draft folder with the preview
(but don't open it).

Workaround: Remove spaces from the names of the images, or send them as
an attachment.

Evolution: 2.6.1
Ubuntu: Dapper
