    I'm on my Galaxy S7 using Samsung's Email App. Clicking the arrow next to Inbox, I get a listing plus a header for Custom Folders. I'm trying to either Set Up New Folders OR import folders from my Verizon Email provider. All I get is Show/Hide folders. How do I create or import folders in this Email app??
    Thanks.
    Dave

    May not be an option in the app itself

    You can't copy "folders" into an email....
    all you will get is the link to the folder itself, not the files that are in it.

    If you just must send it via email, Zip the folder and all contents into one ZIP file.

    send that via email... when it is UnZipped, all will be well.

    I much prefer to use my HighTail server, and just copy the link to the folder there.
    It then does the ZIP function, and when you copy the file from HighTail, it will auto UnZip onto the recipient's hardware in the same exact format it was on my hard drive.

    there are lots of other options that will do the same thing.

    Not really trying to copy a folder. The Email app has a heading of custom folders. Assume that means I can "create a new folder". If I could copy my Verizon folders into the app, so much the better, but the first choice is to create a new folder in the Email app. Any additional ideas?
