For one I cant seem to be able to create a subfolder in Mail. Everytime I try it says it does it, but the folder never shows up. I have to create them with Entourage instead. I am using Gmail.

Second is there a easy sorting option by email in Mail? This is what I mean. Outlook 2011 has a feature where it sorts out emails by name in the inbox. For example if I have 50 emails from 48days.net, or 100 emails from apple.com I will not see 150 different emails in the inbox, I will see 2 emails, and I can click on a email and a subfolder shows up with al the different emails. This DOES NOT require a folder or a filter in Outlook 2011. I do not own Outlook 2011 so I have to find out a way to do what I need to do in Mail. I also am using Entourage 2004, so if anyone knows of a solution please comment.

As you can clearly see, subfolders do in fact work in Mail.

Not sure what's going on with your system, but it's on your end.

As to your second issue, Mail isn't Outlook. It can "thread" conversations by subject but does not do so by sender. You can easily add a smart mailbox for this, takes at most a few seconds (a smart mailbox is not a filter or rule).
