    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.

    I am pretty good at clearing out the e-mails almost daily. Especially since I get about 150 a day from this board!!!

    I did recently clear out my PM's both the in-box and sent box. I would suggest cleaning these out for all of you!
    Of course as a mod I probably get more than my fair share of PM's!

    After you check the box to select those messages you want to delete, scroll down to the Blue Selected Messages Box, click on it and there should be a white box pop up with choices, select Delete and then click on Proceed.
