The Android email client is a comprehensible app capable of accessing the accounts of Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo users. However, despite its usability, the client does not allow the user to create folders for all of these accounts directly from a mobile device – only for Gmail. Users will have to create their new folders by accessing their accounts on a web browser. Once this is done, the Android app will allow you to use the additional folders with ease.
