Folder limits increased in Web Mail - 08/09/07

Up until today Web Mail had a limit of 40 folders, counting the default folders plus any you created yourself.

Many users asked for the ability to create more, so after looking into this I was able to get this increased to 200. That should be sufficient to satisfy just about all users. The change was made this evening and is in effect now for all mailboxes.

If you have never created a new folder in Web Mail, to do so you simply click the link to Folders on the left side of Web Mail.


This will take you to the Folders page where you can create new folders, delete the contents of any folder with a single click, and delete or rename any folders you created. If you use up the 200 allowed folders, the button at the bottom of the page to "Create Folder" will disappear until you delete a folder to bring you back under the limit.

I am having trouble inserting a picture into the text of an email without it being attached as well. How do I just copy and paste and image without it becoming an attachment? Please help!

This is currently not possible in Web Mail, and images must be attached to new messages. But we will be adding the feature soon to insert images inline.

If email comes in to me in html format, I get an opportunity to compose a reply in the same, but if it comes in plain text, or if I want to compose a message, I just get plain text composition.

Is there an option hidden somewhere that I have not found where I can choose html composition either all the time or when I want it?

It's at the top of the compose page, click on "Color and Graphics". That feature will be improved soon (in the next release).

recent related problem I have not been able to solve --- when I login onto email, my folders do not come up at all??? Thoughts?

If I understand your question correctly, you are not seeing your list of folders on the left side of Web Mail and can only view the Inbox. If that is the problem, then go to your folder management page by putting in this URL after you are logged in to Web Mail: http://webmail.earthlink.net/wam/folders.jsp

That will show you all your folders. Look and see if you have created one with any special characters in the folder name. That might be breaking the folder display, so rename any folder like that to use just letters or numbers and see if the problem is fixed. If so, please respond back here telling me what character caused it to break, so we can fix it.
