Using the MailClient you can list folders, check their presence, as well as create and delete them:

Operations expecting a folderPath argument will treat this the following way:

Folder PathDescription Example
NULL

This is interpreted as meaning the <Inbox> folder.


path beginning with / This is interpreted as a path from the mail connections root folder./Archive/Orders
path not beginning with /

This is interpreted as a relative path to the <Inbox> folder, so translates to /<Inbox>/Archive/Orders.

Archive/Orders 

The intention of this behavior is to abstract away the fact that <Inbox> has many different names depending on the connection, i.e. IMAP typically uses INBOX, Exchange calls it Inbox, and a German Exchange calls it Posteingang.

Also note that POP3 does not support folders other than <Inbox>. Hence when you specify a POP3 connection, folderPath parameters other than NULL will raise an exception.
