I'm trying to add a mailbox, but don't know how. Everything else works wonderfully. Thanks for any assistance.

Titanium G4, Mac OS X (10.4.1)

    There is no way...yet, that you can add a mailbox via the iPhone. If you're using an imap email service than all you need to do is add it on your computer and next time you check your mail on the phone it should appear.
    If your using a pop service I don't think it can be done either. If I'm incorect than I hope someone will correct me.

    Sent from my iPhone.

    Hi, That adds an email account, not a mailbox within an account. Thanks anyway for the try.

    This is a huge issue for me as nearly all of by business email is done through my POP account. When I sync the iPhone, all of my mail is lumped into a single folder and there are no subfolders. I have more than 100 rules that direct my email to 15 subfolders. None of them show up on the iPhone. If anyone knows of a way to make them appear, I'm all ears.

    The only way to make that happen is to configure your email access using IMAP. IMAP can be configured to replicate your folder structure onto your iPhone. POP has no way to create folders in your mail account other than Inbox.

    Does your email server support IMAP? If it does, you can configure it using the "Other" shortcut under Settings / Mail / New Account on your iPhone, and selecting IMAP as the choice on the top.

    IMAP is usually a pain (e.g. a Mac IMAP'd to Groupwise). It's awefully slow. I suggest if you're able to use webmail, at this point, do it. I manage all my email (multiple accounts) through Gmail. Plus, I can use Gmail for mobile users.

    Ok now with G3 I guess that's solved
