I have a Dell Venue 8 tablet with KitKat 4.4. I set up the email app to get my web mail from my ISP. There's a lot of emails on the server and it takes a while to load everything and I don't get the latest emails until about a half hour or so after I turn on the tablet. Can I improve this performance by creating a folder and moving everything from the Inbox on the server to the folder? The email app only looks at whats in the Inbox so it should load the latest emails faster. Am I right? I am using a DSL connection. Thanks.

To be a little clearer, the folder I am thinking of creating will be on the server, not the tablet. So, all the emails will be in this other folder on the server which I don't think the email app on the tablet looks at.

I read this about 6 times and still have no idea what you're trying to accomplish. You can't make a folder on the server, but you could make a new folder on your isp mail site. It doesn't make sense to me. If you move the emails from the inbox on your page to the new folder, you've already seen them , so why do you need to see them on the tablet, and if the tablet app only looks in your inbox, but the mails have been moved to this new folder, you couldn't access them anyhow. You should check the settings on your tablet and set it to go directly into your inbox upon opening the program. And also check the amount of time that goes by before the app checks for new mail. Maybe you have it set to check for mail every 30 minutes. Sorry if I'm misunderstanding you, but your post doesn't make much sense.

grasshopper, thanks for responding! What I'm describing is sort of like Outlook Web Access. OWA will only show you your Inbox and not any personal folders. So, I want to make another folder on the ISP mail site and move the ton of emails I have to it. This will empty the Inbox to nothing so when I get new mail I'll only see the latest mails without the Inbox being cluttered with all the other older emails. Doe this make sense? or am I not seeing this correctly? I will check the email app and see if the time for checking for new mail can be changed. That may solve the problem. I was thinking that the app was loading all the emails on the server and that is what is holding up the newer emails from showing up until later. But I see that may not be correct. I'll look into the check email time parameter and get back to you.

Grasshopper,

I found the check for mail frequency options and I set it to five minutes. I received the latest emails right away. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
