How do I open new mailboxes in mail? I want to add mailboxes to be able to keep my mail sorted. Can we only use the ones the ipad came with organ more be added, and if so, how.

Settings-mail Contacts And Calendars Under Mailboxes In The Mail App
After upgrading my iPad today to 4.2.1 (full restore, then start from scratch) I was setting up my 5 email accounts. Something that has perplexed me, but I really have never searched for a possible solution (until now, because I just didn't think about it) was the order the accounts appear in both the settings-mail,contacts and calendars AND under mailboxes in the mail app.The accounts are not alphabetized. I've tried deleting and recreating them in order of alphabetization, etc. The only thing that is constant is my Mobileme account is the top one (no matter what, and I have a pretty good idea why this is so.) The remaining 4 accounts are all Google based, both Google Apps and regular Gmail accounts.

Color Code Mailboxes In The Mail App?
I am guessing that unless I J****brk my phone, which I don't want to do, that this probably isn't possible, although I for the life of me can't figure out why Apple left this out.

I have 4 mailboxes in my Mail app on my iPhone 4S and iPad 2. Both running iOS 5.1.1. Is it possible to have mail from each mailbox color coded in the All Inboxes section so that I can tell which account the mail came from without having to open each email or work from the inbox listing?

I know that if I J***brk my phone that there are apps that will do this but I don't want to go that route. I J***brok a previous iPhone and had nothing but trouble with it. I just want to be able to sort my email in the combined inbox so that I can tell where the emails came from. Is this really too much to ask?

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.0.1, White 32 GB

Create New Mailboxes And Move Mail Options Are Pointless
I'm not all that familiar with this feature, I imagine it's the standard email manager for Macs but I'm a PC-boyo. I don't even use outlook, I never went very far beyond hotmail.

Anyway, I noticed in mail that it dumps all emails into Inbox by default, which is to be expected and thus isn't that bothersome. Strange thing is that it seems to have a Mailboxes feature that implies you can store your emails in folders that aren't the inbox. I used a feature like this in my Hotmail and I found it was quite conveniant, I made a folder for my work, my personal life, family, gaming, etc.

Problem is... I can't see how one creates new Mailboxes. I can bring up the list of mailboxes, but all I see is the inbox, with no options or selections for adding new ones. I couldn't even find anything that looked like that in the iPad's settings.

What's more frustrating is that I saw in the inbox that you can click edit and it offers you the option of moving your emails. Which, again, implies that other mailboxes can be created. But, again..., the move option is pointless because all I've got so far is one inbox.

Has anyone here figured out how to create multiple mailboxes, or is it the program itself that is still a WIP? And the multiple mailboxes are simply not put into use yet.

Groupwise Mail - Web Version Of Safari - Mail Is Not Open
My company uses Novell Groupwise. I can open the Web version on my iPad using Safari, and it lists the incoming mail, calendars etc. The Calendar works, but the mail will not open. I get the incoming mailbox, with topics and time/date, but any individual message will not open. I bought this thing to avoid taking a laptop on business trips, but if I can't read my email I wasted my money. I tried forwarding the mail to my .ME account, and again, the mail shows up but there is no content. Comments?

Mail Retrieve Email When Mail App Is Not Open
I just tested out the Mail application to see if it would automatically retrieve email while I was not in Mail. That "Push" setting is on. I used a different email account on yahoo and sent myself an email but icon on home screen did not show the email coming in (red box with number in it) after waiting about 15 minutes. I then opened Mail and the email came in since it always checks right away. From what I understood, Push setting meant it would automatically retrieve an email whenever it came in, or maybe I misunderstood. What is the point of that new mail red box icon indicator if Mail doesn't retrieve email unless I'm in it and I know already?

Unable To Open Mail - Mail App Crashes
I have the same problem on iPad and iPhone. When i open mail and connect to POP account, it crashes. I can see mail for a few seconds - there are emails in there from one month ago. Even after i've cleared all emails via webmail, reset my devices, deleted and re added the accounts. Both devices seem to have remembered the old emails - any idea how I can solve this?!

Mail And It Settings Will Not Open
I have a new iPad2 for a week or so now. I'm new to iPad, do not have an iPhone, but do have Mac experience.I got the iPad2 connected to our wireless network, set up email in Mail and have down loaded some apps, surfed via Safari, etc., all with no difficulty. Mail has been working fine both sending and receiving, then all of a sudden stopped working today.

Mail sort of opens up, but there's no messages visible and nothing else except the empty Mail screen, and there's no functionality from there. It appears to be frozen. the only thing that can be done from there is tap the home button and go to the home page. The Mail app button shows 14 - I assume new/unread messages?, but none of them show in the Mail screen when I tap it.

What Does Your Mailbox Display When You Open The Mail App?
Whenever I open the default Mail iPad app to check my emails, it usually (about 7 out of 10) displays a certain email that I had received a few weeks ago. I don't know why it always chooses to display that specific email is a mystery to me.But, it sometimes displays a different old email as well.Shouldn't it display either the latest email that I've received or the latest email that I had already opened?

Mail / Contacts And Calendar Will Not Open
The "Mail, Contacts, Calendar" tab won't open in Settings. Everything else in Settings does...this doesn't. It just locks the screen and eventually closes out to the main screen. Here are some pertinent items:

- It's not jailbroken. Hasn't been and I don't plan on doing it.
- Was having problems with apps crashing. Tried resets (all kinds) and that only worked temporarily.
- Closed all programs in the multitasking doc.
- Loaded two programs from iTunes: System Activity Monitor and XSysInfo programs. The first shows my % System running up to 75% from time to time, then crashing out that program. Also shows "crash report" after I get dumped out of Settings.
- Unloaded recently purchased programs, including the ones listed above. Still no change.
- Did a "restore" and still same crashing problem + no access to "Mail, Contacts, Calendar" tab. Also, now mail and calendars aren't being fetched. And when I open them there no data and everything is locked (like if you try to change from weekly to monthly view.)
- When I do a sync, I get message that everything got sync'd except mail and calendars....that the process was stopped by the iPad.

Open Excel Spreadsheet In Its Mail?
I was having an issue opening a spreadsheet with the file extension .xlsm. This appears as an attachment from a client which means macros were utilized when creating the spreadsheet.

The problem lies in. The iPads ability to open the attachment. I downloaded the numbers app thinking this would be a default software to open any and all spreadsheets.

In contacting apple support I was told I have to open the file with a Mac and then save this as a numbers file. This is definitely unacceptable as I want to utilize the iPad rather than carrying my MacBook.

Info:iPad, iOS 5.1
