If you've got an iPhone or iPad, odds are you've got your email accounts attached to it. If you use standard email services such as iCloud, Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo, you can better manage your messages by creating folders within your email account. The best part is that you can do it straight from your iPhone or iPad without ever having to access your mail from a desktop computer.
Not quite sure how? That's okay. Follow along and we'll have your email cleaned up and organized in no time.
Launch the Mail app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
Here you'll see two sections that are labeled Inboxes and Accounts. We will be working with the Accounts section towards the bottom.
Tap into the Account that you need to create folders within.
Tap the Edit button in the upper right hand corner.
You will see a new button appear in the bottom right hand corner titled New Mailbox. Tap on it.
Type in the name of the folder aka mailbox you'd like to create.
You can also change the Mailbox Location directly underneath where you type the name of the mailbox. This is nice for times when you want to nest mailboxes inside of each other. For example, you can have a general work mailbox and then a mailbox inside of that for each colleague if you really want to.
Once you're done deciding where you'd like the mailbox to be located at, tap Save in the upper right hand corner of the create mailbox screen.
That's all there is to it, you can now start moving messages to the mailboxes you've just created. Feels good to be organized doesn't it?
