    I have my comcast email on my iphone and I've been trying to figure out how to create more folders? For instance a folder names trips so I can put all of my trip emails in that folder, another folder called school where I can put my school related emails in etc. I get all my email thru comcast but would like folders to sort the emails in the correct folders rather than have all of them just in the inbox if that makes sense. Please help. Thanks

    I did that

    When I do that it only allows me to choose sent or trash, I can't create one and name it, also I don't see new mailbox, I have add mailbox which is where it only gives me the option of
    trash or sent. I'd like to create a new folder and name it. I went about it this way, clicked on mail, edit, add mailbox, clicked on Comcast then it only gives me the option of sent, draft or trash. Doesn't allow to create a new folder

    I don't have Comcast but was able to test via Gmail.

    Steps:
    Opened Mail
    Made sure I was on the Mailboxes screen
    Scrolled down to Accounts
    Selected the Gmail account
    Selected Edit
    Selected New Mailbox
    Named new mailbox and it synced back to Gmail
    Newly named folder also appeared on iPad

    However I was not able to follow these steps using my Roadrunner email account. I believe this is because Roadrunner uses POP3. This makes me wonder if Comcast uses a POP3 email system as well. You would need to inquire with Comcast if that is the case.
