    How can I delete mailboxes from my gmail account on iPad 2?
    I follow all the steps, but as soon as I press delete, it bumps me right back to my opening screen. So I click on mail again, and that mailbox is still there. I must be doing something wrong. I need COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS...PLEASE!

    I no longer have a gmail account so I cannot test it for you in that regard. Having said that, all you should have to do is the following.

    1. Initiate the native Mail app.
    2. Select the specific email account you'd like to delete a mailbox from.
    3. Select "Edit".
    4. Select the mailbox you'd like to delete. Note: Some mailboxes cannot be deleted. The ones that cannot be deleted will be grayed out.
    5. After selecting the mailbox you'd like to delete, select "Delete Mailbox". and then select "Save".
    6. If taken to the previous screen, select "Done".

    I'm having the same problem as I cannot delete a mailbox. It goes right back to opening screen. There is definitely a problem with this app. Since I cannot delete it, how can we get Apple to fix the problem.

    Are you referring to folders?
