Default How many emails are in your inbox?

This is something that deeply annoys anyone who is sitting close to me.

I have 4708 emails in my inbox.



How many unread emails have you got?

I thought I had a few, until I saw newbs' inbox

32,522 - I had a purge a year or so ago (actually I think it was about 18 months) so the oldest unread message should be from then.

39,208, not including the junk folder. It actually looks quite spam-free these days, so I dread to think of what it must have been like in the past. Tens of thousands of offers of no-strings rumpo from reet dirty lasses in my area, and statistically at least one of them was probably genuine.

I keep my emails from my future Russian bride Tatyana, and my friend in Nigeria who constantly asks for loans to be wired to him (I tell him he needs to improve his budgeting skills). All the other crap gets deleted.

At work, probably hundreds. That'll take all morning to sort through when I get back (even though I just ignore them all)
Very few of them will be actually to me though. They'll be cryptic notes from Sharon about finance stuff that I don't understand or need to know, or automated messages about unresolved support requests from 2004.
Privately, nil.

Default Re: How many emails are in your inbox?

37183 unread in my personal email, 4370 in my job interviewy type one. I never delete them unless I'm having a massive clean out (approx. every 3 years). I am going to email hell.

Also, many of them are from here, since I once signed up to get notifications for the threads I've replied to, which worked when I'd only ever replied to like 4, but is now getting somewhat ridiculous. So replying to this thread is just going to add to the problem.

^ I'm loving the amount of pride you take in this. I feel like I need to reply to this thread 1000 times to bump you up past Merrit's levels.

People who regularly clear out their emails scare me a bit.

I'll make a prize for the winner at the weekend. (Keep your expectations low!)

Default Re: How many emails are in your inbox?

I only delete the contents of my inbox every few years, unless it's obvious junk that's deleted straight away.

Why keep them? Well, there are occasions I like to refer back to what's been sent or some things I can keep which could crop up several months down the line (which has happened...). I do have two e-mail sitting in my inbox which date back to 2010 when I changed jobs. I avoid deleting those because there's contact details on them which may come in handy in the future.

I currently have around 250 e-mail in my inbox.

There's 468 unread.
I've had a few good clearout's of them recently though, so that's why its not the worst.
