    Mapping Your Folders
    Important: Complete the following steps to prevent email from being deleted from your device.

    Mapping your folders enables you to synchronize email across all your devices, email clients, and the web. By default, some email clients and mobile devices create their own Sent, Trash, and Drafts folders. You can map your sent, deleted, and draft messages to their proper folders, and access any sub-folders that you have created, by following these steps:

    1. After you have set up your mail account, go back to the home screen on your device and tap the Mail icon.
    2. Tap your new account mailbox and let all your mail synchronize. Then return to the home screen.
    3. Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, tap your account, and then tap your email address.
    4. At the bottom of the Account screen, tap Advanced.
    5. On the Advanced screen, tap Drafts.
    6. On the next screen, in the On The Server section, tap the Drafts folder.
    7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for your Sent and Trash folders.
