Because they're goats, and goats have tails.

(Sorry, Worgen.)
Because they made Eredar with tails and Draeni are Eredar thus they have tails.

So more than likely it is a by product of their desire to having the demon leaders have a 'devil' motif.
Balance? Perhaps draenei don't have the inner ear mechanism for balance that humans possess?
You leave my tail where it is.

(Headcanon henceforth, proceed with caution.)

Draenei have tails to assist in balance. They are large-framed as a race, and their crests/horns signify solid bone density. Such a creature would have a lot of momentum in their movements, and would need a 'rudder' for balance should they really get moving. It's totally a balance thing to keep them upright. Not to mention, the males' plating on the upper section would indicate that it's used for protection/potential shock absorber.

Biology is your friend!
/waggle, why else?
That tail can be very useful.
C'mon, you know like my tail.

Tails are what some animals use physically to balance themselves, it does not give them a sense of balance...

Because they are just altered humans, and humans don't have tails.

As if a spray of liquid all across my body and face was a deterrent.

They are the alliance equivalent of Tauren, though I like our tails better. It was a failed experiment of racial balance.

The liquid in question is acid.
Draenei tails seemed like they would be very tasty and I hope they turn them into a consumable at some point.
