    Miss Caphat I want it that way

    I have thousands now. Yahoo has made it more difficult to get rid of them. You used to be able to make one really long page, hit "check all" go through and uncheck the ones you did want to keep and hit delete.
    Now the page just endlessly scrolls to infinity so you can't really do that :( :mad:

    I saw Maria Ozawa at an airport.
    She looked pretty rough in real life.

    On my phone (which has around a month of e-mails across four accounts) there are 676 unread.

    In the outlook backup file on my laptop there are 7,537 unread out of a total of over 17,000 e-mails.

    At work I've no idea.

    I open them as soon as I get them cos o hate seeing a number and all that bold.
    I don't read them generally though and I forget to delete them. It's really bothering me actually, but i can't face an hour or so of deleting messages.

    So that's why I'm still waiting for my tax rebate to come through. :mad:

    Genuine LOL! :D

    I have about 6000 archived E-mails on my work account, going back about twelve years. Very handy when someone says 'Who gave you authority to do that?'. Even more satisfying if it was them.

    Miss-Shelf I've looked at life from both sides now

    I had 17000 in my hot mail. I bit the bullet recently and deleted them so I can use it again. Next step will be to stop or divert all that shop spam mail that makes it build up so much

    Do it. You will find it helps

    I have none. I had a massive clearout the other day due to the hundreds relating to Greebo. :( Spent hours filing into sub-folders.

    Why don't you unsubscribe to all that junk?

    I really don't like Yahoo mail now. They made it a lot harder to use.

    10 in the account that I use.

    In the account I had to abandon because of spam overload, probably 100,000

    Miss Caphat I want it that way

    ok, because seriously I'm going to devote like 10 hours to unsubscribing to a bunch of email marketing lists, just to get put on 100s more the next day? I didn't sign up for 99% of mine, yet I have 35,000 + emails in my account, still, after several unsubscribe / delete / mark as Spam purges which are terribly boring to do.

    No thanks, I will just continue to log in and look at the silly numbers next to my mail icons, read the ones I want to, and ignore the rest.

    p.s. sorry about the Greebo ones, that must have been a melancholy experience :(
