    Hi....I have just joined the Forum....hope I am posting this in correct section.
    I have a Hotmail e-mail account and it works perfectly on Ipad2 .. The only thing is I cannot seem to create separate folders to place some of the e-mails I need to keep. I do this on my laptop but cannot figure out how to do this on iPad. When I click on the folder sign at the top right it only brings up Inbox, Draft , Sent and Trash as options to send to and I cannot see how to create a folder.
    Thanks.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    How is your hotmail account setup? I'm thinking it is a pop account which does not allow for folders, you can however set it up using Microsoft exchange. Have a look at this link.

    Hi....thanks for reply. I reckon my account is in Pop.... I tried the link info and did ok from the home screen to Microsoft Exchange and entering the fields until I came to Description field......this is where I got lost as I tried typing in all that was shown in the link and just got confused and lost!!...... Sorry but I was not totally clear on this from my lack of knowledge on what to put in. Perhaps I should just accept that on my iPad I cannot have my hotmail e-mail with folders like I do on my laptop. It's not the end of the world for me and I can manage to get by.
