Email Is Nearly Unbearable

No, I’m not talking about Hotmail, just my work email. I’ve just caught up on email from the weekend (yes, it’s Monday night). I have a Search view in Outlook that shows me what email has crossed my path today (cleverly enough called “Today’s Mail”) that I use to keep track of threads. Checking it right now it shows 413 mails, meaning 413 mails have crossed my eyes (it takes out mail from listservs I’m on as well as removes my deleted mail). Of that, I sent 114 mails. My inbox is finally down to 44 unread mails out of a total of 338. I’ve had to set my auto-archive to only keep three weeks worth of mail on the server and yet I still run out of space nearly every two or three weeks. Gaa, this is getting crazy!
