I've got my iCloud email set up on my Samsung Galaxy S III however I'm a bit stuck on how to get the Sent, Drafts, and Trash folders in sync.

When I read an email on my phone it's updated in iCloud straight away, when I move an email on my phone to another folder it moves in iCloud straight away. But if I delete an email on my phone it goes into its own Trash folder (instead of the iCloud trash folder) and iCloud creates a new folder under my list of personal folders with that deleted message. When I send an email it's the same thing.

It'd be good to have those three folders in sync so that when I delete a message it goes to the correct iCloud Trash folder and so on.

I'm not sure if it's even possible or not but if someone knows the answer I'd be very grateful!

You need to change the mail client settings to point to the correct IMAP folder for trash/sent/junk etc. I wouldn't have the slightest clue how to do it on Android, however it's fairly simple on iOS/Outlook/Mail/Thunderbird, so I can't imagine you having to dig too deep.

Hopefully this points you in the right direction :)
