    I just took a look at the number of emails I have in my different accounts on yahoo, gmail and hotmail and realized that over the course of the last 10 years or so I have accumulated 18,547 emails saved and stored on those accounts. That's with the spam filters on although I'm sure a lot of the saved email I have is not really important.

    How many emails do you have online? After voting be sure and post the numbers of emails you have and your online email services.

    Mine- Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail and total of 18,547

    I delete almost all of them.
    Keep just a few e-mails (= less than a dozen).
    I try to keep my Inboxes as Clean as Possible...;)

    Mostly none. I may keep emails from a trade in progess, but when it is done, the emails have to go. I see no reason to keep them, I backup an important data elsewhere.

    I think I am more of just unmotivated to delete the ones I don't need anymore.

    On one of my personal E-Mail accounts I have over 35, 000 messages in the inbox. I think the lowest amount on any of my E-Mail accounts is about 12, 000.

    I don't have any emails stored online as I download them to my client. However, if I did use such services, I'd do regular housekeeping.

    Less than 10.

    I had 100's of emails going back as far as 2005, deleted them all about 6 months ago, and rarely ever use email to communicate with anyone anymore.
