    Hi Mitch, I set up my dad’s Roadrunner email on his Android devices for him but it seems like I’m unable to see existing or create new subfolders under the Inbox. (I use Yahoo mail so I’ve never experienced this problem before.) Why isn’t there a subfolder option available and is this something I can fix? Thanks!
