    That can only happen if you are using an IMAP or Exchange account. If you have a POP account, there is no way to create mailboxes anywhere except on the computer. Mailboxes cannot be created on the iPhone or iPad for a POP account.

    Are you using Gmail through the iPhone mail client or with the gmail application? You would need to go into the mail account settings on the phone and ipad and check which folders you want to sync.

    You need to go into Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars and check the gmail account. I do not use IMAP or gmail, but all mail settings are there. If there is no setting there, I am not aware of any other method.
