    Creating new folders for recieved e mails

    If you are using an Exchange or IMAP e-mail account, have a look at this thread: Extra folder in Mail account

    Hopefully, it'll help. Holler back if you need more assistance.

    Thanks for your reply.Did I say I was 69 yrs old so you have to go slow with me.I use Gmail synced with my PC if you can help me further.I cannot get the screenshots you have so helpfully depicted no matter where I go in the mailbox or in settings,I never get to where there is an EDIT BUTTON blast it.Hope you have lots of patience.Thanks.

    Creating new folders for recieved e mails

    No worries. I went an re-looked at my photos and realized I made an assumption (I left out the part where people usually start). Apologies.

    I am going to assume you are in the Mail app on your iPad. See if this picture helps you to get to the first picture in the thread I linked:

    Does that help or did I further confuse the issue? Let me know...

    Creating new folders for recieved e mails

    I think I've figured it out - you're using the Gmail app versus the stock Mail app. To make sure, which icon/app are you using?

    Creating new folders for recieved e mails-imageuploadedbytapatalk1358613490.814576.jpg

    If it's the red M one - that's the Gmail app and no, you cannot make folders in it. You have to use the other app, which is the default Mail app that comes with every iPad.

    At least I think that's what happening - please correct me if I am wrong.

    Hi Angus from someone who uses Gmail. Go to your Gmail page and tap on Mailboxes, then tap on edit then look down at the bottom it says add mail box. Tap that, name your new mailbox and there you go...
