E-mail folders contain the information that is essential to your e-mail account. You put e-mails you want to save in folders. When you change e-mail accounts, it is easy to lose the information you've saved. You cannot import folders with web-based e-mail systems, but if you use system-based e-mails, or private e-mail companies with "Import" options within your account, you can bring in e-mail folders from any account.
