    Mail does not let you create folders from within the app and even with it's limitations is Mail still the most sophisticated email app for the iPad.

    Anyway, there is a workaround and that involves you using a browser to create the folders in the webmail. If your email account is setup as either IMAP, or Exchange, than Mail will create an exact copy of the mail server layout, including any folders you have created.

    It is important, that you setup your email account as IMAP, or Exchange, as POP does not sync the folders.

    If you are looking for the full webmail features, than Better Webmail may be of interest to you. It is similar to a browser, as in, you use webmail, but the app supports fullscreen and you can easily swap between different accounts.

    However Mail is the most advanced, and yet limited, email app.

    You can't attach files from the basic Mail app because the iPad wasn't really designed that way; it's doesn't have a central file system like a PC. But, from within most apps, you can email a file that the app is processing and, from within third-party apps, such as GoodReader, you can email any number and type of attachment - but they're held locally by GoodReader, so it's not accessing, say, the files held by another app.

    The iPad was deliberately designed this way - it's not trying to be a PC and it isn't. PCs are file-centric devices with a global filing system. The iPad is different; it's an app-centric device where files are held locally.

    If you want your iPad to behave like a PC then you're inevitably going to be disappointed. It's a new generation of computing platform and it requires a new way of thinking.

    Most apps will let you send the files directly from within the app. So let's say you use Pages and want to send the document, than you would select Email document, of for emailing photos, you would open Photo, choose the picture you want to send, select the right pointing arrow and Email Photo.

    So rather opening Mail and than browsing for the desired files you want to send, you just open the app which has the file stored and send it from there.
