+ How it works ?

FolderBuddy is an IMAP client -just like Mail on your device- FolderBuddy communicates directly with your mail server over a secure connection -when supported by your email provider. Your password is safe and only send to your mail server.

+ What about POP ?

Sorry FolderBuddy work only with the IMAP protocol. POP server do not support server side folders, so FolderBuddy can't help.

+ What about Hotmail ?

Sorry FolderBuddy work only with the IMAP protocol. Hotmail does not use nor offer the IMAP protocol and thus FolderBuddy can not work with Hotmail account.

Huge Disappointment

I was really excited when I first saw this product. I could not understand (still don't) why the Touch does not allow you to create custom folders like I can on Mac Mail on my laptop. I know all you techno-geeks will say "duh" and then explain in over-my-head-detail about why it cannot. The bottom line is that this product will not work with "POP servers" since they "do not support folders on the server side so it's impossible to manage folders with a POP account" (this is what the developer told me - I'm sure it means more to some of you than it does to me). At the end of the day, it won't work with an ISP like "Cox" which only supports POP but not IMAP. I'm glad the app only costs $2 because it is completely useless to me, but the problem still remains that I cannot create custom folders on my POP accounts on my Touch. Unless of course, someone has a solution out there of which I am unaware...

Work as described. Great to manage IMAP folders on the go

FolderBuddy is a great application that work as described. The UI is well done and after setting your account information you have full view of all the folders available in your email account.
For some reason Apple did not include any folder management in the Mail application, and FolderBuddy is basically the perfect solution for that missing feature.
FolderBuddy is fast and the user interface is consistent with the other Apple applications on the iPhone. I have used the application for my various accounts : GMail, Yahoo, MobileMe and my business IMAP server and it worked without a problem.
Probably the most difficult thing was to find out the correct IMAP settings for my business account since all the other accounts have already a convenient way to be setup : enter your username, and password and that's it ! FolderBuddy automatically know how to access those services and a few seconds later you can see all your folders.

I really like the fact that with one application I can now manage all my IMAP folders for my different accounts. It is convenient to be able to do that on the go just using my iPhone without the need to power up my MacBook.
For anyone that does a lot of email on your iPhone -or iPod- and need to be able to manage your mail folders, then there is no question that FolderBuddy is a MUST HAVE !
