I saw a thread mentioning starred folders and realized that was a Gmail reference. I have a Gmail account but I do not use Gmail. I use agent as my email client and use an optonline.net email address.

My question is this: In order to have folders must I switch to Gmail and use a gmail address in order to have that on the Pre?

If that's the case I would imagine adding the ability to create email folders and filtering would not be forthcoming in updates as that functionality would be achieved in the cloud vs. locally.

Is everyone using Gmail adresses or am I misunderstanding?
My apologies as I am still trying to sort things out.
