    I believe you can't create folders on the iphone.
    if you need folders, get an IMAP mail accoutn (for example gmail). then you can create folders on your pc and they will appear on the iphone as well

    It depends on your ISP as to how you set up new folders. Everyones software is different. Who is your internet provider and do you use their email? Otherwise do as blackwolf suggested. Get Gmail or Yahpoo and forward your ISPs inbox to the Gmail/Yahoo account and set up your folders within Gmail/Yahpoo

    when he only has three folders he probably has a POP3 account, so that isn't possible. that's why I told him to get an IMAP account, that's the only way

    Mine is a POP3 account. I only had 3 folders. I logged into my account thru the web mail service and added more folders. I didn't add them thru the software on my computer. So I know it can be done.
