I presently have 55 pages of emails in my inbox. Not all of them are unread! But obviously I don't delete them all as I read them. Some get deleted and I have been trying to make sure that I delete or file as I go. But I am definitely a work in progress.
I delete anything which I do not need to keep in special folders,which is where I file the ones I do wish to keep.
I check and empty my Junk file4 every day ,as occasionally a proper email will end up in there!
Certain friends' emails are definitely for keeping,so I do have several special folders for these.
I delete emails I HAVEN'T read!
And after reading the ones I choose to, I either file or delete.
I am constantly deleting 50 emails from my promotions tab at a time. So much junk mail goes around everyday.
I heard a statistic that 90% of all emails sent are spam or junk mail!
I delete the unopened junk mail as soon as I see it. Other mail I keep in my files I have for that person, in case I need it again. I'd never thought of deleting the send mail. I have gone back to the sent file, & retrieved something to forward on again.
