Email has been a hot topic this week and a Wonder of Tech reader inspired me for the topic of this week’s poll. Do you purge your email, loving when your inbox count is zero? Do you let your emails accumulate so you can access them later? Are you somewhere in between, deleting junk mail but organizing others in folders or with labels? Let us know by voting in the poll below.
Now that you have voted, I’m curious, does how you treat your email reflect how you treat your worldly possessions? Are you someone who keeps your things in case you might need them again or do you like to clear out your stuff to avoid being burdened by your possessions?
I have found that those who keep lots of emails in their inbox like to hang onto their stuff for a long time as well (t-shirts from high school, childhood favorite toys). But I also know people who like to purge their belongings but keep their inboxes full. What about you? Let us know in the Comments section below whether how you treat your inbox mirrors how you treat your stuff.
Also, if you are brave enough, add to your comment the number of emails in your inbox now. This should be interesting…
