Junk mail is something that we deal with on a daily basis. Whether it’s putting envelopes in a shredder or moving email to the trash bin, it’s a task that is necessary and a waste of time.

Which is why I have my junk mail folder automated to delete email after one month. That’s enough time for people to ask me, “Hey, did you get my email?” Then, I can wade through the viagra offers to see if they were lost in the deluge. I appear to have reached an equilibrium point with my junk folder. It sorts out the correct mail, and deletes the month old items. For the last few weeks, I’ve received the same number of emails that have been deleted.

The number of unread emails in my junk mail folder: 666
