Adding New Mailbox in iOS 15

The preloaded mail application in iOS devices allows you to create multiple email accounts and merges all the inboxes into one.

This allows you to browse through different emails fast and easy. And if you want to look into individual email accounts, you can split the mail accounts accordingly.

Creating a new mailbox on an iPhone is as easy as creating a new folder in an application or sub-folder in a main folder on other devices. The overall process involves naming the new folder and setting its actual location or main (parent) directory.

To get all these things done, you’ll have to navigate to the right location or iPhone menu where you can create the desired mailbox folder from scratch.

If you’re new to iOS and need some input on how to add a new custom mailbox folder on your new iPhone 13, then the following steps will walk you through the entire process.

Steps to Create/Add New Mailbox on Apple iPhone 13 Mail Application

Apple devices running on the latest iOS version allow users to create a new mailbox folder to store and organize important emails in a dedicated folder. And here’s how it’s done on the new iPhone 13 device.

Before you begin, verify and ensure that the correct email account (mail account) is already set up on your iOS device. If you’re planning to create a new folder for a new email account, then you’ll need to setup the new account on your iPhone beforehand.

The above steps are also applicable when adding a new mailbox folder on other iPhones that have the same iOS version with the iPhone 13 series.

Actual screens and menu items may vary between device models and wireless service providers. Just keep your iPhone software up to date to ensure all key features and menu options are present.

Moving Emails to New Custom Mailbox

Once you’ve already created a new custom mailbox, it will be available for storing specific emails.

That said, you then should be all set to move messages from your inboxes into any of the custom folders you’ve created. This would help declutter your inbox and make it more organized.

To move messages to a custom mailbox on your iPhone 13, just open the mail app then go to the Mailboxes screen.

While in the Mailboxes screen, tap to select the mailbox that contains the messages that you’d like to move. Tap Edit on the top-right corner and then select the desired emails by tapping on the circles before them.

When the emails are selected/marked, tap Move and then choose the custom mailbox from the list that shows up. All selected emails will then be transferred to the new mailbox folder.

Deleting Custom Mailbox from an iPhone

To delete a mailbox, just tap to select the mailbox that you’d like to delete. Doing so will take you to the Edit Mailbox window where you can change the name, mailbox location or delete the selected mailbox. Simply tap Delete Mailbox to remove the selected mailbox from the mail app and then tap Save on the top-rightmost corner to apply the recent changes.

And that’s all about adding a new mailbox folder on the stock email processing application on the iPhone 13 and other iOS 15 or later devices.
