IPad Mini questions

Just does not seem to work in the same way as previous iPad - can't create mailboxes in email, doesn't sync with my iPhone - bit annoying really

The iPad Mini does both the things you mentioned. obviously just not setup correctly. Check the Apple support website for tutorials.

I have looked everywhere to try and sort the mailbox and tried syncing through iTunes - closer but not a match yet

Mine works fine. Have you tried Settings- mail,contacts,calendars- choose add account, then add your email in the right spot.

nothing really different about a mini. probably due to newer os. I went from regular to mini and everything worked and works as it should syncing with iphone, mac etc. Give apple a call. its free for the first 90 days as i recall

I just want to add extra folders so I can sort my emails but the only folders I can get an inbox, trash and sent!

I didn't think there would be differences - both using same OS so can't understand why they're not the same - will try calling Apple - thanks

Provided they're both running iOS 8, they are the same. The difference between the iPad Mini and iPad exists purely in the hardware.
