Mine's currently 1.2GB  - I filter some things automatically into sensible 
places (e.g., this list) but at some point all the "other stuff" got out of 
control and it became too much effort to try and decide where to put things or 
what should be kept because it just might be important again a few months or 
years down the line. I rarely delete things now.

Urgh, I keep my yahoo account open because about once in every six months a 
legit message comes in from someone I haven't heard from in a while, or 
someone who forgot that I migrated to gmail for my 'main' address, or someone 
who's found my old yahoo address in an archive somewhere. It's a pain in the 
backside, because every day there are 30 or so spam messages to ditch.

cheers
