    Managing folders in Windows 10 mail app


    I can't find any way to create or delete folders in the Windows 10 Mail app. Has anybody figured out a way?

    If the mail protocol is IMAP, you have to 'manage' the folders on the server side (create a new folder in the web or server client). I'm fairly certain that if you manually set up the mail account as POP3, then the Mail app allows you to create folders.

    One could create and delete folders in the Win 8.1 mail app (IMAP) simply by right-clicking in the app and selecting "Manage Folders". As far as I know, the Windows 8.1 app did not and the Windows 10 app does not support POP3.

    I'm not sure about the Win8 mail app, but since POP3 is widely used I would be surprised if that app did not support the protocol.

    Win10 Mail app definitely supports POP3
