I have several free email sites that I've acquired over the years. Some of the sites were too small to handle the larger files or the volume of email. Others became plagued with too much junk mail (I thought). I have one personal email site I only let freinds and relatives know about and I will check the other sites occasionally to see if someone forgot to change their address file. Last night I went into my Hotmail site after about a month and found 372 messages awaiting me, of which 3 were actual personal messages. I had to check who the mail was from before deleting to make sure I didn't throw away the wrong mail. Just a whole lot of junk! I thought my mail box got enough junk mail to keep advertisers happy, but it doesn't come close. Right now I seem to be a close personal friend to many political leaders and political parties who all need my immediate attention before the world falls apart. Many petitions and many requests for donations. My phone has also been ringing a lot more each day with political needs and charitable needs. I have obviously been put on "The List". I give to whom I wish to give and support the candidates I respect and let the others know that I don't agree with them - and that's enough. I don't respond to most mail or most email and have my phone answer machine pick up any important messages and try to live my life peacefully.
372 messages is a lot of wasted effort.
