I have Windows Live Mail running on three PCs, each has different folders. and all incoming messages are synchronised on all PCs. I set up my new Kindle Fire HD E-mail and it is receiving all the incoming e-mails (same as the PCs). My problem is that there are no folders listed on the Kindle Fire HD, only Drafts,Outbox,Sent, Recycle, Spam.
How do I "configure the account". ?
My PlusNet E-mail settings:
Incoming (POP3) Server: mail.plus.net
Outgoing (SMTP) Server: relay.plus.net
IMAP Server: imap.plus.net
What can I do ?
There are dozens, maybe more than a hundred, different folders now set up on the three PCs, each one is different, used for saving archived messages. I can amend the folders on each of the PCs independently. Only the incoming messages are synchronised.
Now, I want to set up and lable new folders on the Kindle Fire HD in which I can save archived messages (both received and sent).
Can I expect a reply (by e-mail) directly from the other experts, or will you reply. Any idea how soon this might be ?
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.I'm sorry about the issue. Please delete the email account on your Kindle Fire HD, then re-add the email account, and select the IMAP (not POP...) option:

Hello Droid Zombie / Viet / Cris
Thank you all for your comments and suggestions.
Here is my summary of the situation:
I currently have three PCs all using Win 7HP and the new Kindle Fire HD tablet. All my incoming e-mails (typically 80+ per day) are simultaneously received on all four devices which suits me fine. I am able to manipulate the messages (save, delete, copy, forward, reply etc) independently on each of the three PCs with folders which I have chosen, set up and named. The folders are not the same on all three PCs for historical reasons.
My original request was to have the ability on the Kindle Fire HD E-Mail to make and name new folders for storing messages in the same manner as done on the PCs.
None of you have so far been able to give me such a solution to my request.
It was suggested that I should re-install the e-mail account on the Kindle Fire HD and select IMAP (rather than POP). In which case, what happens with the other three PCs ?
Can you have Kindle (IMAP) and three PCs (all POP) at the same time ?
The other problem with the IMAP option is that I do not want the folders on the PCs being interfered with whenever there is change made on the Kindle Fire HD.
Also, I understand, from PlusNet's E-Mail Set Up instructions, that with IMAP it is necessary to be connected to the internet in order to read messages on any of the devices (Kindle and three PCs) and that messages are just viewed on a central PlusNet server but cannot be downloaded. This is certainly not acceptable because many archived files often need to be accessed and read for off-line editing.
I have to say that I am deeply frustrated with the E-Mail operation on the Kindle Fire HD because of its lack of such a basic feature as folder creation and naming. The instructions available with the Kindle Fire HD are also totally inadequate for any reasonably intelligent person.
I look forward to your constructive suggestions if I have missed some feature on the Kindle Fire HD.
Thanks and Regards,
