iCloud: Organize email with folders in Mail on iCloud.com
iCloud automatically sets up seven default Mail folders: Inbox, VIP, Drafts, Sent, Archive, Trash, and Junk. You can create additional folders and subfolders to organize your email. A folder with subfolders inside it has a triangle next to it; click the triangle to show or hide subfolders.
