Wow! That was so carthartic! I hate seeing numbers in the corner of that little mail icon on my phone and now not only is there not a
number, there are only two emails in any of my inboxes.
It was so
easy too, knowing that I could still access items in my archive helped
me pare down to practically nothing. It was a great opportunity to ask
myself "what is the worst thing that could happen if I lost this email?"
which is probably a good thing to ask in any de-cluttering process.
It only took me a couple of minutes to read through the instructions and about 10 minutes to clear out about 3000 emails.
