    An extra folder, which is not part of my Hotmail account, has appeared on my iPad email account. I have deleted and set up again but it is still there and I don't know how to get rid of it. I have tried deleting the folder when accessing my mail in iPad but no success. Any ideas of how to delete the folder? Thanks

    I don't use Hotmail, but:

    Try going to the website via Safari and delete the folder there.

    Can you say the folder's name? Maybe that could give the pro's here (not me) a hint...

    It's called "drafts" which is also there under inbox too. There is nothing to delete via safari as it is not there in hotmail, in other words the two do not mirror each other strangely.

    Well, then - in the drafts fold all mails which you start writing but decide NOT to send arekept until you decide to delete them or continue writing and send them. This is a system's folder which is occasionally needed, therefore you cannot delete it.
    (Why would you want to - does it both you so much?)

    Hope this info is helpful...

    Good question. It didn't occur to me that Polite might be trying to delete one of the default folders.

    Sadly it does bother me and I don't see the need for two folders for the same thing. Thanks anyway.
