Inbox: 87 emails

Hoo boy. Gtd help me.

How many emails are in your inbox?


  • 87!? Do you mean in total or just unread?

    I have zero unread (I read and flag them as they come in all day). In total I have 1505 in the Inbox, with another 4-5000 throughout 50 sub folders. All of them read.

  • Hi Jeff - I mean unread. My system differs a little bit from yours in that I move mail out of the inbox after I read them.

    I envy your zero-unread state.

  • 14 right now, which will be reduced to zero in the next five minutes. I am using a GTD-like system of folders together with keyboard-shortcuts.
    Unfortunatelly I also have 280 mails in my "read / later" folder. But these are mails I don't really need to read. Most of them go into the archive on friday.

  • the interesting point it: how many mails have you in your spam gmail box?
    me: 156
    if you track them each day you will obtain a pretty curve, does it reach a limit?
    (damn, I have to tore those info somewere)
