This is irrelevant for dynamic view.

This is explicitly handled in the IMP_Application#appInitFailure() ...  
if compose data is seen in a POST and there is no session, the message  
should be saved to the user's VFS backend.  (We can't save to users'  
draft mailbox, since we don't have access to the IMAP server at this  

I faintly remember fixing some issues relating to session expiration  
in the near past.  Although you may need to be running (unreleased)  
Horde 5.2 and/or IMP 6.2 and/or Horde_Core to see the fixes.

This is already handled.
