    Coming from BB10, the Hub lets me select which folders are sync'd to the main view.

    My Outlook.com account has several folders and subfolders where server-side message rules automatically sort mail into various folders. I need this to keep things organized.

    With the BB10 Hub, I don't have to go poking through folders to see what's come in, all the emails that get sorted into subfolders are displayed in a "flat" view, rather than hierarchically.

    Not having used iOS much, I don't know if it too works this way. The Oulook.com app on Android certainly doesn't, and I have to go browsing through all the folders manually.

    Importantly, I'm not talking about "notifications" here. I want a flat view of the contents of my email folders.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, but I only have one inbox. Can I set it to show messages from all subfolders in one flat view without having to drill down into each folder?

    I use the stock mail app. I am logged in to 4 different email accounts and have no issues accessing the folders for each account. Here's a screenshot:

    But don't you have to drop emails into the folders when they come in to the inbox?

    I may not be clear in my desire here, or it's not a supported feature :/

    I see in your Yahoo inbox you have a couple of folders showing - "111"" and "2010 NCA National"

    There are messages in those folders. Can you get them to display in the "Inbox" view without having to drill down and open up each of those folders?

    On my iPhone, email comes to the inbox first, then I drop them in a folder if it's anything I want to keep. I can then open a folder to view them when I need to. I've never known mail to come in direct to folders. Exceptions being All Inboxes and Junk. I don't know of a way to move mail from folders to inbox like you want. There are options in Mail you might use. Tap edit in the top right to bring them all up.

    Sounds like my question has been answered: If I want to see the contents of subfolders, I have to drill down into them, I can't see them in a "flat" view like I can on BB10.

    Sigh. Everything seems like a compromise.

    I guess it does take getting used to. You can view folders along side the inbox by turning the phone to landscape view.

    No.... when I've opened a specific email, there is a folder at the bottom. I tap on that and then select the folder that I want to move the email to.

    Sorry to take so long in answering... was at a late meeting last night and didn't catch up until just now. To answer your question, to see contents in a specific folder, I do have to tap on the folder.

    Oh well. Neither Android nor iOS is making the switch away from BB10 appealing.
