Thanks for that tip! I did not know that and it is very helpful!!Quote:

Ha! Today, I accidently discovered I could just move the Roadrunner e-mails into my Gmail account/labels. No re-mailing required!
I take an e-mail that comes in to my Time Warner Roadrunner account, press the "move" button (the little down arrow thingy in the Mail app), select a folder in my Gmail account (on the left side when the iPad is in landscape mode just browse to whatever folder you want) and put the e-mail into that folder. Ta da! You've moved an e-mail to a different account. Oh, and the Gmail server updates/sync to show that newly moved e-mail.
Now, y'all probably knew this tip/trick already, but I thought it was so cool - I had to share it as a tip. But, I no longer care that Roadrunner is a POP3 account with no way to make folders, so yay! :)
BTW - I should imagine this would work for other accounts too, not just Roadrunner (and, if they are IMAP as Gmail is, the server may also update). I do know that I can move an e-mail from my Gmail to my Roadrunner account - the e-mail will "disappear" from Google's server and will show up in the Roadrunner account on the iPad. Or, I can move either of these accounts e-mails into a third e-mail account (my college e-mail). Granted, neither the college nor Roadrunner servers update like Gmail's does, but still, I think it's a handy way to manage e-mails/inboxes.
Just makes managing e-mails a little easier as I do like folders for just-in-case-I-need-it storage purposes. Of course, and as always, YMMV.
