    Thanks! Are you referring to icons in the Mail app of the iPad. Mine is iPad1. I don't see any extra icon though I have turned Archive Messages on.

    I misspoke. It is file box sort of icon (not a folder).

    At the top right of the Mail screen you have several icons for flagging, moving, deleting, sharing, and starting a new email (in that order). If you have Archive turned on the third icon is a file box looking icon instead of a trash can. If you have more than one account setup, this will change depending on what folder and/or email you have selected.

    Your view may vary, since you have the iPad 1, but it should be similar. The GMail archive option has been around since iOS 4, if memory serves.

    I don't know what happens. This time I go into the Mail. The screen is all blank, apart from showing four icons on the top right corner. After a short while the app just simply exits out to the home screen.

    The first icon has an arrow pointing downards. The second one looks like a bin and I am not too sure if it is a garbage bin. The third one has an arrow pointing leftward. The last one is, as I can remember, for compsoing a new email message. None of the icons does anything at the moment. I remember when there is an email displayed, an icon next to the one having an arrow pointing downwards does not look intuitive to me. I had tried it when worked, the message displayed just disappeared. So I am not too sure if it had been deleted. I read up the iPad manual but I couldn't find all the icons explained. So I do n't know what flagging or sharing icons look like. I wish they have screen tips like Windows telling me what they do.

    There is definitely Internet connection. I can see the word iPad and the signal symbol on the top left corner. No mailbox is displayed at all.

    This is what you see, except the first icon (flag):

    Twerppoet posted it before.
    The icon with the arrow pointing down gives you the possibility to move a mail into another mailbox. The trash bin moves the mail into trash. The third icon gives you different possibilities, one of them answering the mail you see. The last icon is for creating a new mail.

    Thank a lot for your help.

    What is the first symbol on the left. Is it a flag? How come I don't get it.
