I'm in a CS3 catch-22! I had Contribute working fine & had 3 drafts I was working on. Web host changed FTP passwords. I go to edit connections and it says "Can't edit without deleting or publishing drafts". When I go to publish, of course I can't because the FTP password is wrong, and I can't delet for the same reason. I tried deleting from Outlook Explorer but there seems to be a problem still -- no drafts show in draft console, but I STILL CAN'T EDIT! HELP!
Did you find a solution? My client is experiencing the same type of situation.
Darn, I'm having the same issue now (had to change my FTP password), getting an answer doesn't look too promising either with your posting last May, and no answer.
here's my question, just in case! http://forums.adobe.com/message/2586986#2586986
