Dan, I’m not sure what you mean by “sub mailboxes”

Is it “Labels”? That’s what shows up in the left sidebar on a GMail screen on a computer. They act like folders, but they are really just categories of email identified by labels. You can delete the labels by clicking on the down arrow by them and choose Remove Label. 

If it’s the tabs at the top, they’re controlled by the settings, Configure InBox.

Here’s a video I made to show you what I mean, let me know if it helps.

I am talking about the labels. I tried to follow your instructions, but I don’t get a down arrow, but a horizontal arrow which lets me open the mailbox.

So sorry for my delay … to insert a picture of your screenshot, use the Upload Attachments button below (at left) of the message box to insert an image from your computer. If it’s somewhere else on the web, insert a link to it.

Are you by any chance using the GSuite version of gmail? That means that it is attached to a business account and there is a system administrator person in charge who can make modifications to how gmail works.
