    Sorry to bring this topic back after so long, but it STILL appears to be unsolved. There are some folders that I simply don't want to be notified about unless I manually check them. The suggested workaround doesn't work for me.

    I am the founder and CEO of a rather large firm and we were considering a rollout of new iPhones for our entire sales staff nationwide however, upon testing one new iPhone we found that there was no email folder management built into iPhone? We have been using WM6 and Actice Sync which allows full email folder management.

    To iPhone Developers:

    Our exchange server has many server side rules that properly sort all emails into sub-folders for priority handling, etc.

    1. In WM6 you simply select which folders you want to keep in sync.
    2. You can expand any sub-folders under the inbox using the symbol.

    Why is this not a standard feture of the Apple iPhone 3G? We feel it would be a necessary requirement for a rollout of iPhones into an enterprise business application?

    It is an obsticle preventing us from any further deployment of the iPhone...

    I am not the founder, nor the CEO of a large firm. I am just your average iPhone owner. However, I do know how to use spell checker and would expect that the "founder and CEO of a rather large firm" would also know about this technology.

    Does anyone know if this missing capability will be included in the 3.0 release later this year?

    (I've had both BB and MS Mobile devices over the last years (which have this capability) and do REALLY like my iPhone... but as a business user who travels out of the country and to locations that are "off network" this issue has been a headache too frequently.)

    If I were the founder and CEO of a large firm, besides having a better grasp on spelling, I would delegate product review to someone else.

    The mark of a good CEO is the ability to delegate. This CEO has lots of free time apparently.

    Yes, in 3.0 you can specify which folders to push along with the Inbox.

    What about specifying which "contacts" folders? It is not available in 3.0.1

    I just switched from Windows Mobil 6 and Exchange - and it notified me for all the subfolders I specified to sync the number of new emails I received (althought the new mail notification only showed for the main "Inbox", when I opened mail numbers would appear alongside all folders that had new mail). It is a real hassle with my new iPhone to open every single folder to have it sync for mail. Wouldn't be surprised if they did it to conserve battery.

    While I couldn't locate the documentation, I did stumble across how to specify which folders to push - go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select the exchange account - select the "Mail Folders to Push" and check the folders you want.
