how do you creat folders in ipad mail? All I have is inbox and trash.
If your email account type is IMAP or Exchange, you currently have to create folders in webmail using a browser or desktop mail program. Folder creation on the iPad is coming with iOS 5.
If your account type is POP, you do not have the ability to use folders.
Will we have to buy iOS 5?
I just bought my iPad 2 yesterday. Pop is my server. I have been going crazy trying to figure out how to save some of my mail as I do in my MacBook.
iOS 5 will be free, and will be available to download in the Autumn (so may be as late as November).
Tap on your mailbox icon that brings up existing folders. Then tap EDIT. At the bottom right it will say ADD MAILBOX, confusing wording but tap and add whatever name FOLDER you want. I just did it in new ios5 and it works great!
Perfect. Thanks so much for explaining this!
