    i swear,when i am done, i am going to need to defrag!

    i had 4 pages of PM's sent
    and 3 pages of PM's in my inbox.. yikees!

    now i am working on my emails..

    Do you get rid of them right away or do you tend to hang on to them all?

    i usually am pretty anal about keeping my inbox cleaned up..but this month, it got away from me!

    I have folders with emails in them from years ago. They are all legal emails or family feud emails that I may need some day! I have to laugh thinking about it, but they are really important!!

    I try to Clean them up as they go, or as a topic has completed in my boxes, if theres some thing I need I make a note in my buddy list.

    It really depends on my mood for the day...

    I keep important email and my PM's. I can't tell you how many times I have gone back to refer to them.

    put them on a thumb drive and empty them from your computer, they are only taking up space and should there be a crash, they might not recoverable if they are more than 2 years old!

    How do you use the buddy list and why,or what does it do for you? i think that is the only thing i don't use.

    I tend to keep mine for a while. I like to refer back to them when answering. They are mostly from my children and grandchildren. I usually try to clean up my inbox at night when I can't sleep. That gives me a chance to reread the old ones so can see if there is anything I want an update on or just to comment on some nice memory. :) Others I tend to delete right away.
