Did you ever sign up for an email list, then configure your mail file to send the messages to a particular folder?   Then forget about it.   For months?

Yeah.

3264 messages.   Yikes.  There's just no way I'm going through that many messages, so out will come the delete key.  I'm sure I missed some kind of important emails in there, letting me know my version of the software has some kind of bad bug that will crash my stuff.   But, I just don't have it in me to sift through that much chaff.   I'm just lucky that my mail file didn't 'splode.  That could have been embarrassing.  Thank god we're past the age of 5 MB limits on mail.   Or maybe not.  Perhaps I would have noticed that I hadn't read anything since september.  Good thing they sent me that notice to remind me that I'm on that list.  And that the notice didn't end up shuffled off into that same folder.
