cannot edit folder name within mail section
unless you are trying to rename a special folder (which needs to have the same name to map your emails to it correctly, like inbox, Sent, etc.) you should just be able to right-click the folder and choose to ‘Rename…’
hi i have tried that but it does not work, just reverts to original name
Ok, can I ask what email account does this happen on? (is it gmail/yahoo/outlook/…?)
What mail service does it use? (IMAP/POP/Exchange/AirSync? Check your settings in Tools > Accounts if you are not sure)
i use gmail imap
that is rather curious - it might seem silly, but do you press Enter after you finish typing the new name of the folder or do you click elsewhere?
Thanks for the simple advise, I was clicking elsewhere as I have been used to doing so in other programs but clicking enter has now renamed it.
