    I recently updated to a Gen 4 128GB 3G/4G iPad from my previous Gen3 64GB WiFi only. I made a fresh backup of the 3 on iTunes on my MacbookPro and Restored as much of what could be allowed back to the fresh new virgin iPad 4.

    Just out of interest, the order from top down of my Mailboxes is now completely changed and I have tried all kinds of tricks to move them but nothing! Is there a way? Although this is my bought and paid for machine I use it a lot to do my work at work and home ( a kind of 24/7 support to fellow staff) simply because its a quicker way than other options my employer provides including Work email which would be great if that Mailbox was at the top of list followed by my main ISP then my Gmail, iCloud and then say VIP.

    Seems weird too that it appears in a different order than previously on the other iPad 3.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    You should be able to change the order of the mailboxes. In this view, tap "Edit"

    You can drag the mailbox you prefer to the top, using this:

    Thanks JA, you are a diamond! The process works even under iOS-6 upon my main use new Gen 4 128GB iPad. (I have my spare Gen 3 64GB iPad on iO-7 now as a test and going by my main problem of finding the new thin font text on the white background as unreadable in Cal etc I am holding off updating).

    Glad to help. :)
    As to the calendar: you could download another calendar in App Store. There are loads of them.
