    Hello folks,
    Here's a quick question..
    I like to spend my commute/flights organizing my inbox. When I'm looking at mails and i don't have a network/data connection (on a train etc)or am in flight mode you cant move emails to folders, or delete them. I get the message 'unable to move message' etc. I understand WHY this happens (cos i have no connection) but even rubbish Windows Mobile lets you do this 'offline' then once the signal is back it performs the actions on the server, and moves/deletes whatever. Another bug-bear is that you cant create folders, and all the folders that are on the server show. there is no way of collapsing the folder tree. I have many client folders and it takes me about 20 swipes to get to 'sent items'.. Very annoying!

    I am assuming this is only with Exchange and possibly IMAP servers.
    Its annoying that you cant organize your emails unless you have network coverage and a data connection. Anyone have a work-around?

    I have the same complaint, even my old Palm TX allowed me to do IMAP moves and deletes while offline.
