Do you empty your e-mail box?

I don't. Well, sometimes I log onto MSN and it says 99+ messages, then I pull this face: :/ and say 'Oh.' and empty it. Other then that, I don't.

As soon as I get done reading I delete it. Unless if it is pointless then I delete right away.

Almost never. I get a ton of unwanted messages, so I usually only end up emptying it out when I get a few hundred messages piled up from the years. x__x;;

July 8th, 2009, 5:23 PM
Never. I have at least 1200 messages in my Yahoo account that I rarely use any more. My Gmail account which is my primary email account is heading in the direction too because I only check it about once a month. :P

July 8th, 2009, 5:24 PM
Nope. :/ 400+ unread messages and counting.

July 8th, 2009, 5:24 PM
Only my SPAM box. Everything else I keep. :P

I only did it once, and that was yesterday.

My email is....OVER 9000!

I have a lot of emails but I don't have over 9000 emails. More like 2000 or so. I just passed 2100 not too long ago. Maybe I should start deleting them one day.

Rarely never to the point where I never delete any because I am lazy.

EDIT: Nope. just got over 2600 emails.

I used to have like, 3000 e-mails until I cleaned it out not long ago.. and now I have 602 or something. I hardly ever clean it out until it really needs cleaning.

I empty my trash (most newsletters and notifications) and my spam

July 8th, 2009, 6:42 PM
Once I read them I automatically delete them all.

I delete the spam. Alot of my emails are pkm.files of events. So I keep them on my email just incase I cant find the folder I downloaded them on.

My GMail has currently 6,115 conversations in the Inbox and 4942 Unread. So yeah, I obviously don't clean mine out at all.

I mean, if Google is going to offer me 7GB of storage, why bother? I'm never going to fill it up and most of my unread stuff is from Bebo or Facebook.

I just mark everything as read and leave it there for possible future reference.

July 8th, 2009, 10:25 PM
Only once in a blue moon. I'm lazy like that.

July 8th, 2009, 10:26 PM
I empty my E-mail inbox everytime I get a new E-mail. I never save any E-mails.

So much junk I have to every 5 hours. XD

Nope xD I sometimes even not check it :D

I never empty it. I keep receipts and important emails in there =/

Additionally I have 20GB of space in my main Apple email account and up to 40GB in the ones hosted on my domain, so it's not going to ever get to a problem that way.

i have in my gmail, 40169 emails (that's WAY OVER 9000!) and i do delete the useless (and spam) ones.. I prolly have 1000 more on my other email accounts where i only keep the useful or business related one.

July 9th, 2009, 2:20 AM
I don't empty my E-mail box that much.

July 9th, 2009, 3:19 AM
Yes I empty my E-mail box if it's reach 1000 I empty it, but I won't delete some important e-mail there.

July 9th, 2009, 7:02 AM
I keep the e-mails which I might need to refer to in the future in by inbox still.
Other than that, I always delete the ones I've already read, and the ones that I know are spam.

July 9th, 2009, 7:26 AM
whenever I check my emails I empty it out...so basically...like...once in a month or so:D

July 9th, 2009, 7:29 AM
I do have to if it's from things like Facebook, i get quite annoyed at that, but actually i have a lot of important emails that hold top secret things in :D

July 9th, 2009, 7:37 AM
Sometimes I do, and when I'm looking for a certain email I will.

Other than that though, I rarely do it. XD I sometimes organize emails from specific senders though, so it's not as bad as just piling them altogether in one folder.

July 9th, 2009, 5:09 PM
I have to i get to many messages >.> lol

July 9th, 2009, 5:16 PM
I delete any spam and facebook notifications right away, but otherwise I have a bad tendency to just let things set. D: I try to keep it organized with folders, though.
