  1. adding folders

    Is it possible to add a folder to my gmail account while using the mobile or web app or do I need to go to gmail to do it. I can do it in my home version of office that came with outlook easily enough but have looked everywhere for an add folder button without luck.

    • Folder/map Archief

      Please remove map/folder Archief (Archive) from Hotmail. I don't want it and I don't need this. I can't remove it myself.

      Thanks!

          • too many lines and I do not like 'conversation' view

            I guess I'm old school but I much prefer seeing emails in the order they arrived. It seems too cluttered to have so many lines between items and conversations/replies running together in a string. Sorry, prefer the old look.

            • Can you set it up so that my emails are automatically put into folders by sender.

              Inbox is sorted into folders by sender instead of individual messages.

                • Why can't we have the ability to create additional folders from our android phones?

                  Can we create additional folders while using our android phones? Shouldn't that be an option?

                    • Ability to delete unneeded/unwanted folders.

                      Ability to delete unneeded/unwanted folders. ie. archive, conversation history and rss subscriptions. These folders are not "needed" and anyone who wants them can simply create them. Or, please suggest an alternative e-mail client.

                        • Put repetitive updates from a single source into a single container

                          I often let e-mail newsletters and updates from companies build up. This creates cruft in my inbox. Even in "other", it can take a while to weed through.

                          I find it is much more efficient to deal with all related e-mails at once. For instance, I get the Boston Globe daily newsletter. I might go and catch up on the last few days, then delete the rest. Having a single "Boston Globe" container I can manage would be much more useable than everything mixed together. Let people merge groups, have groups of groups, with the lowest level of organization being…

                                    • My idea is to remove those ridiculous extra folders

                                      My idea is to remove those ridiculous extra folders and make an option for customized colour scheme instead. Also please get someone to fix all the buggy issues with your website and app email. Since you guys took over Hotmail or bought out, it's been nothing but issues because you guys cheaped out on a app developer who created what looks like Facebook jail with so much buggy issues. Yeesb!! Don't be so clean and serious just to be cheap on the costs of the website as well. If you don't want colours can you guys splurge for your users…

                                        • overkill on "other" folder

                                          way too much thrown into "other" folder that was not thrown into clutter. terrible inconvenience needing to go through TWO inboxes! Why not keep same rules and just move "clutter" to tab position? multiple steps to move other BACK to focused folder very annoying.
