Dead drop email strategy: Is it actually secure?

I'm read in the news lately (online and print) that people are starting to conceal their email traffic. So instead of sending emails to a person's inbox, they're writing messages but leaving them in a draft folder or dropbox. Then the other person would log onto the same account and look at the drafts, which makes it harder to trace. Are there any benefits to this strategy? Would you actually call it a secure line of communication?

    Would you actually call it a secure line of communication?

    It's almost a certainty that accessing an account is far easier than decrypting properly encrypted files.
