I was having this discussion with my brother because he has taken issue with the amount of unread e-mails I've never read or deleted or marked as read, so I became curious as to what other folk do.

Over 2000 on one account and maybe 200 on my gmail. My problem is that I never bother deleting anything. If it's important I save it in a different folder. If it's not, I just ignore it.

Always make sure to check them as well as report all spam and 'unsubscribe' to promotional emails I've been signed up for.
I'm anal like that.

I should say I do keep my work e-mails at 0, but we do only get 500 MB of space there. I do tend to keep a large amount of them (I think 7500+ total currently), but do at least mark them read. I find that disconnect between my work and personal Gmail accoutn mildly interesting.

work and personal are both at 0 unread.

I only have 7 total emails in my inbox in my personal account because I like to keep that clean too. If I get a few things sold on CL I'll be down to 4 and 2 of those are just reminders to me to do something.

Having a completely empty inbox is like taking an enormous shit. It feels great but you know it's only temporary.
I am all that is MOD!

work - 137 unread
gmail - 61 unread

clean up my gmail once a week

Combining all the e-mail addresses I've accumulated over the years, 10,000+. Likely over 20k at one point.

Usually never more than 10 for work. To sort, I just drag by sender to their own folders. Mark the ads as read or delete, read the important stuff.

Work in the double digits
