My company email account has a ton of public folders that I almost never look at. Some of my personal email folders are at the bottom of this list which means I have to scroll through pages and pages of folders to get to the ones I want.

Is there a way to close these folders? I've tried the intuitive double tap but it just behaves as a single tap, opening the folder instead.


iPhone 3G, Mac OS X (10.5.4), 8GB

    I would appreciate any suggestions on this as well.
    Even a way of getting the folders to default to all closed instead of all open would be a huge step forward.
    Appart from the Inbox, its almost unusable on my main imap account as it stands.

    I have the same problem as you guy's have. I hope somebody can help me as I have 100's of folders and sub-folders. Scrolling down these are not the way to do it. There seems to be some major flaws in the mail app.

    Please help us!!

    Can I add my voice to this request. I have to scroll through dozens of sub-folders to get to the relevant ones.

    I believe they can't be collapsed at this point. One thing you can do, even if it's not a great solution, is rename your folders to begin with an "a", or perhaps a symbol like "-" to force them to the top.
