First, rotate your iPad to landscape mode. It will make the following steps easier to follow.

 

Next, open the Mail app and tap Edit (next to where it says Mailboxes) in the left pane. Scroll down to your folders (Mail calls them "mailboxes") and tap on the folder you want to delete.

Tap Delete Mailbox to remove the folder from your email account. A prompt will open to have you confirm your request to delete the folder.

Note: the information above was shown from an Exchange email account, but the steps apply for IMAP email accounts as well.

Thanks for your reply, John.  In my Outlook email that would work but in Xfinity email, Edit isn't highlighted next to mailboxes so I can't click on it.  Smiley Sad

How do you have the account added - as a POP or IMAP account?
