    I setup my office imap account on my iPad's mail and have approximately 100 sub folders that I can expand or contract on my PC in my Outlook inbox that are now appearing on my iPad's screen. I cannot contract those sub folders on ther iPad and I only want to see what is in the main inbox. Is there a way to hide these sub folders? All I want to see on the screen of my iPad is the main inbox, sent items, outbox and deleted items. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :thumbs:

    Hi. I also have this problem as do the directors in my company whose PC's and iPads. Would love to know the workaround to sync Ms Outlook, where the iPad hides the email inbox folders as they are in Outlook. Will watch earnestly.

    Unfortunately, there is no way, as of this date, to collapse the folders in the stock Mail app.

    The only thing I can suggest is to send a feedback item to Apple at this link: http://www.apple.com/feedback/iPad.html

    Sorry.

    At this point in time based on the sheer number of iPad owners that also use Outlook I am sure that Apple knows about this ridiculous issue.
    Do you know of any independent email app available that will take care of this issue?

    As Marilyn indicated previously, there is not an independent email app available, except what is provided. Outlook is a MicroSoft product. If you can get MicroSoft to develop an app that will synch up with the iPad's email app, so that you can get the functionality of native Outlook, that would be great!

    So basically we are being held hostage because of the ongoing pissing match that takes place between Apple and Microsoft. :thumbsdown:

    When you say Outlook, are you talking about only syncing when plugged into your PC, or are you actually IMAP'ing to an account on an Exchange server?

    Does the folder structure live on a local drive, ie. PST file, or is Outlook syncing to an Exchange mailbox directly?

    Sorry for the delay in replying but I have been on vacation and not online. I am syncing with an exchange server using an IMAP account.

    Not that I have heard of and it should be a fairly easy fix for the geniuses at Apple. When it comes to email functions they are definitely behind the curve.
