    Hey Guys,

    Having more drama's with mail.

    In all other mail clients i am able to set up folders nested under the inbox (inbox/...)

    However in mail, though i can see ones i have already made under the inbox (listed as inbox/... in gmail labels) i am unable to create new ones. I can only make new folders (mailboxes) under "Work Gmail"

    Is there some way to allow me to create folders under the inbox (i have tried labeling them inbox/... but it wont let me)

    I'm really starting to dislike apple mail.

    Not sure I am understanding the question/problem but you can easily create "new mailboxes" from the menu and when doing so, you are prompted for the parent folder via a dropdown selection. Very straightforward, hence my not understanding your question/problem.

    Hey mate,

    My problem is, that from that drop down you cannot select "inbox"

    Here is a screen dump of my folder setup that i created in gmail (with the inbox/blah blah blah) This is where i would like to create new folders in mail.
