    Default Mail Folders/Labels

    Standard gmail vs exchange, contacts vs labels

    Edit: I changed the title of the thread to better fit (i guess)

    I am not sure if you were able to edit and add folder (under accounts in mail app), on ios4, but have noticed this feature in the new update (ios5). When I go to add a folder for a yahoo account it works fine. Now here is the part that I don't get. With my gmail set as exchange I can sync my contacts, but I cannot add a label. I get a message stating that the server could not creat the folder. However, when I deleted my exchange gmail and set up as a typical gmail accoun, I can now add labels that are reflected on the pc, but I loose the option to sync my contacts. Does anyone know if there is a way to get this to work for both? Is there a setting that I am missing in the exchange set up?

    Note: the setting on my gmail on the pc has IMAP enabled. Don't know if this matters either.
