Many, many years ago I gave up deleting any emails to do with work. This way I can prove I am right and that everyone else is a fool who refused to listen to me.

I have many, many folders within my Inbox for various systems, projects, people, and so on.

However, aside from automated emails such as system alerts and so on nothing gets filtered by content, anything sent to me by a person goes into my Inbox, and stays there until I have dealt with it or the issue it pertains to.

Trouble is so many bloody emails come in each day, and I do not move as soon as something is finished, and if I'm not careful I find myself with almost 1000 messages in my Inbox.

This morning I was around 500, spent some time moving everything that has been dealt with, and I am not at 396 and yet to move out everything from last week.

How do your run yours?

Let it grow, neat and tidy, delete everything that isn't marked as urgent?
Every man can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends.
