Do you remember how it is to have an empty email account? When it says “You have no mail.” and looks so tidy?
Last week I signed into my junk email account and found that I had over 20,000 unread emails! For the last six months, in my head, I had just stopped caring about that email account, but now I want to do something about it. As I have time, I’m chipping away at looking at old emails and now am just deleting most of them (I processed 10,000 today!).
I now have four email accounts, and one is new, so it is easy to keep it “Clean.” (What I mean by clean is all emails are answered, archived, or deleted). It’s helpful for me to have different email accounts for different things: Personal email, work email, educational email, and then the junk email account.
