Adjusting Your Folders
Adjusting your folders allows you to synchronize email across all your devices, email clients and the web. By default, some email clients and mobile devices create their own folders for Sent, Trash, Spam etc. You can map your deleted, sent, and junk messages to their proper folders stored on the server, and not your iPhone:
- Once you’ve set up your mail account, go back to your home screen and Tap your Mail icon.
- Select the newly created Mailbox.
- From the home screen tap Settings, Mail, Contacts, Calendars, select your Account, and then select your Account one more time.
- Tap the Advanced button located at the bottom, tap Drafts and on the next screen, select Drafts under the Server option.
Repeat step 4 for the Sent and Trash folders. Note: You’ll see that all your sub-folders have populated under the Server option.
