    I don't use hotmail, but if it's being setup using POP, you won't get your server side folders. If hotmail supports IMAP, you can get to the folders. I have the same situation with Yahoo mail. It defaults to POP but if I manually configure as an IMAP server (iOS uses this protocol), I can access my folders.

    Someone here might see this and give you a link to the settings. Otherwise I suggest Googling hotmail IMAP settings to see what you can find.
