What he said. The email I don't delete, I keep for-bloody-ever, too, but I
create diretories under or outside the inbox - 2007-jan-jun, 2007-jul-dec,
etc, and six months later, dump everything from that time period into
them. Or, in the past, I've moved them to directories named for the folks
the mail's from.

Nothing's going to run forever without having problems at some point.
Empty your trash!
