    Yes. Go to the account where you want to add the box. Then hit "edit". You will then have a button to add a mailbox, which you can name at will.

    I should add this note. You won't be able to do this for Exchange accounts and the like, since your iPad only mirrors the folders available on the server.

    All I can think of is that you have Restrictions enabled, restricting the ability to make changes in Mail.

    Kevin, I am using Outlook with Cox as my ISP and I have set up several mail folders on my PC. When I am in the mail app on the iPad2 and follow you instructions in my account there is no "edit" feature to be seen anywhere. What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

    Starting with your first screenshot. When I show exactly what it shows - MAILBOXES>INBOXES>ACCOUNTS - there is no "EDIT" button showing. The "EDIT" button only comes up when I select "ALL INBOXES" from screenshot #1. Unfortunately I don't know how to send you a screen shot of my iPad so you can see. I have the different inboxes for the 3 different account I use.

    Press home and power buttons together and release to grab the screenshot. Using the iPF app go to Advanced/Attach From Photos to post the screenshot. Use Skitch (free from the app store) to remove any personal information that you don't want to broadcast before you post the image.
