    Default Do you clean out your inbox / outbox?

    I just caught myself cleaning out my PMs. I do this on every forum; organize them into folders, delete them if they're superfluous, etc, and I was wondering who else does this? I know of people who have thousands of PMs, some years old, that are just sitting there because they can't bring themselves to delete them (I know this because they do it on my site!).

    Do you let them accumulate? Do you delete them? Do you track them?

    Really.

    My PMs are used as evidence, sometimes. So I keep all of them.



    Although I did move 5,000 of them off the site and onto a disc last November.

    I try to organize them by people every once in awhile.

    Then I don't do it for weeks, and they all accumulate, and I'm just like, "Oh, god, 500 more messages to file, why even bother with this?!"

    I'm not much for mindless Te. I just like to think about how I would organize them, if I wanted to!

    I do this quite often, and clean out my email accounts in a similar fashion, unless there is something that I need to track for a while. On another note, a topic came up sometime ago on the entp.org forum, wherein it was asked how many windows do you keep open. I don't like having screens open that I am not using and keep mine to an efficient means. While working, if I have a program open for a single task, I will close it to maintain efficiency in using my toolbar. I also routinely clean my disc both computer and intranet.

    I don't know.

    I don't usually clean them out unless I have to do so-and I don't usually have to here.

    I let them pile up until I have enough that I can't easily find any thing that I might want to find. Then I have a mass cleaning. If I accumulate slowly, or it's easy to find things for some reason, I rarely clean. This applies to physical spaces as well.

    My computer is well organized though, as I put things directly into reasonably organized folders, so there's no need for moving files/cleanup. I'm not sure why I don't do that for emails etc.

    I usually don't have enough that sorting out is needed.

    If they build up to 2-3 pages, I will clean them out though.
