    I just purchased ipad2. How do I view "sent" emails? Also - how do I add the features shown in this text box. These icons for editing text features are awesome and I miss having them easily available when typing an email. Had it
    With my PC!

    Whilst in mail, go landscape/sideways, on left hand side click on mailboxes, then click on sent items, just like on your PC

    Hope this helps

    P.S as for question on editing features, no can do on iPad version.....I don't think, but there are other mail programs in iTunes that are more usable.

    With iOS 5, you can now add bolding, italics or underlining to your e-mails within the Mail app. That's all you can do (as in, you can't create different justification, bullets, etc.), but it's still more than before. Here's how:

    Open Mail and start a new message. Then highlight the the text you want to format by dragging you finger over it (or, just "Select" one word by holding it and pressing select). Release the text and the Cut, Copy or Paste menu comes up. Tap the right arrow.

    The new formatting options will come up (you'll see a tab titled "BIU"). Tap the button with the formatting icons. A new little pop-up will appear with the words Bold, Italics, and Underline.

    Select any or all of the formatting options. When you are done, just tap a blank space outside the highlighted word(s).

    You can format just one word all the way up to the whole message. Just highlight the words you want to format and go to town.

    I hardly ever use it, because it is a pain to (1) remember how to get to it and (2) go through all those steps. But, if you want emphasis, that's the way Apple has enabled it.

    If that's not what you mean, apologies if I misunderstood your question. Else, hope this helps.

    Nothing wrong with TheRambler's instructions, but I've been looking for an opportunity to try something using Skitch and Keynote in combination; so here is the illustrated guide to getting to your email account's folders.

    Thanks for replies. The "highlight and click right arrow" is EXTREMELY cumbersome. After 5 tries to make it work, I give up. I really hate this limitation in email messaging. This alone will never let me give up my PC. I think this was a missed opportunity.
