Well, it took me a long time, but I decided it had to be done… and it’s not even the New Year quite yet, but I’ve resolved that, at least into the foreseeable future, getting on top of my inbox is close to, if not, priority number one.
So with that in mind, I finally took this advice and am feeling lighter already, if not a tad squeamish, having just archived more than 9,000 messages that had been collecting dust in my inbox.
Thus, if you sent me email in the past month or so (or in the past year!), I might get to it someday (though chances are slim), so if it’s really important, feel free to try again — I’ll be buffing up my filters to hide away all non-essential emails from now on, so do ping me if you don’t hear back in a more-timely-than-usual fashion.

28,000+ spam! Thank goodness for modern filtering.
Whoa…wait a minute…is that Google Reader on the left there above your labels? How did you get that? I want it!
I used Greasemonkey and this script for the reader in the sidebar. You might also find this useful.
Ha, I just did the same thing. I archived everything in my inbox and figure that if it was important, Iâ€™ll run into it again.
Next stepâ€¦ going through those starred items.
9000 in your inbox? Yikes, that’s insane. I’ve been doing the zero inbox for a few years and I can’t stand having more than a couple emails in there these days. You must feel lighter now.
