The concept of folders with respect to email is a little confusing:

In most computer related contexts, a folder is synonymous with a directory.

In the world of email, under the storage scheme known as mailbox, multiple emails are stored in a single file, and that file is often referred to as a mail folder (especially within a mail user client (MUA). Under another storage scheme known as maildir, each email is stored in a separate file and the directory holding those files is known as a folder.

There is a third email storage scheme (perhaps something like mh?) which is deprecated (IIUC).
