I just checked, and my gmail account turned 2 yesterday.
Clocking it from my first email, from the “Gmail Team” explaining how everything worked at 11:19:18 am June 15, 2004, to the last email received prior to 11:19:18 am on June 15, 2006, I saved 36,090 emails.
The only thing I delete is spam, so I am averaging about 18,000 non-spam emails a year.
Now…I could go through my backlogs and delete 90 emails.Â I’m sure I could find 90 emails I don’t really need.Â I could probably find 36,000 I don’t need.Â But why delete?Â Currently, I’m only using 20% of my space.
And more importantly
36,090/18 = 2005.Â Exactly.Â Â
Now, isn’t that weird?Â
