I swear this is my last new topic for today (I love finding out things about people xD). So, how do you manage or maintain your emails in your inbox. For me, i used to clear messages very frequently so there was rarely more than 20 messages...but now, i have 109 unread messages and I think it will keep growing from this point. How about the rest of you? I wonder who's email inbox has the most unread messages lol, one of my friends has 378, anyone have more than that? :P

Between Mail on the Mac, and Mail on my iPhone, I pretty much never miss an email. I have a hotmail account that I use for stuff I think will send me spam, and accounts for all the other non-spam stuff.

I'm a religious email checker, truth be told.

I check my email probably 4 times an hour. I never have anything in my inbox unless it's something important I need to keep for a little while, and then it's gone, too.

I ignore my e-mail, consistently, and get told off for doing so.

"Did ya get that mail?"
"Did ya get that mail?"

NO!

I try to start deleting read messages after I hit about 100. Now that doesn't always happen. I've had as many as 4000 in there before, but I do read them.

I read and delete or reply promptly, but I don't get a lot of mail.

I have web mail for both my email addresses, so I can check them when I'm at work (thankfully no content filters blocking them -- rare these days). Both of my mail addresses are with companies offering POP3 access to servers so I use the Mac mail client to download anything I've not already deleted at the source via the web front-end.

On my Mac I keep two categories of mails in specific folders:

Deals -- contains confirmation of shop pre-orders for stuff from Amazon or GAME as well as notification of delivery of items I've yet to receive. Once received these get deleted.

Game Correspondence -- contains mails received from game developers and other gaming industry contacts for future contact potential.

I save all Sent items and Deleted items indefinitely on my Mac and clear them out after the New Year.

On my Wiiloveit (primary) inbox, I read all e-mails within a day after I get them, but on my Hotmail account I have something like 1400 e-mails in total because I never read them, and because I've got unlimited storage, I never delete them either.

It's Wiiloveit, not WiiLoveIt. So there. Wanna play online? E-mail me: billy at wiiloveit dot com

Easy solution: stop starting new topics.

Alternatively uncheck the box when you start a new topic -- there really should be a profile setting for that!

Lol. or you could do what I do, use your Wii # for your e-mail and don't send anything from your Wii to the NL robot e-mail. That way you can't recieve all of those pesky notices.

If you have Gmail, then I'd click "More Actions" whilst open on one such message, and then click "Filter Messages Life These", and just fill in the boxes to either delete the e-mails immidiately, skip the inbox, mark as read and so on. That's what I do, and what I also do whenever I get e-mails from YouTube or Twitter as well.
