    You'd think folders and archiving would be common sense by now, but sometimes there are still members comments that they have almost 10,000 unread emails in their inbox (Hi @THERESA )

    When you find tidbits like these it's usually because I needed something to link to from a question on a different page.

    haha I have a buddy like that it drives me absolutely insane to look at his inbox. I start getting the shakes if I have more than ~20 legitimate (not automated or forum notices) in my inbox. My working email theory is if I read it deal with it. Reply, archive, or delete. I frequently break that rule with newsletters I want to read but keep marking as unread as I'm sorting through my other mail but other than that it works pretty good for me.
