In email, I don't usually delete messages. That's why I already have a huge number now. But in my mobile phone, I only saved those ones that came from special people or a message with an important information inside. Have a nice day! Happy myLotting!

Yes sky, everything, it's really not my habit to delete any message. Actually in my inbox alone, I already has 20,527 as of now. Lol! I noticed in my Spam folder that it automatically deleted some messages, sometimes i will notice that it already decreases without doing something from it. Well, it seems like it can handle unlimited messages, so why bother. Maybe if I got a warning, that will be the time that I will delete messages. In mobile phone, we have the same habit, to save messages from special people and loveones. Happy myLotting again!

Certainly! I can't stand a bulk of sms and emails into my inbox so I delete it right after I read them, no matter whom/where it came from it has no exemptions unless it refers to business matters otherwise it gets permanently deleted.

I delete all the mail soon after reading them except those containing important information and move them to a separate folder created for the purpose.

Hi, friend. I have two mailboxes. One is the most commonly used; the other is specially for receiving mails from online earning sites. As to the former, i usually just leave all mails there, but the latter is a different case. There are so many mails from online earning sites which bothers me a lot. Mylot, for instance, sends me at least ten mails each day. I'm almost afraid that my mailbox may explode someday. So i'm in the habit of deleting all the mails immediately after i checked them. When it comes to messages on cell phone, i keep what's important and delete the rest.

Hi chen! It's seems that you have a lot of emails from online earnings. You mean 1 account but 2 inbox, or you just use 2 accounts? Sorry for the question lol. Thanks for your response.. Have a nice day!!

Nope. Neither one account with two inboxes nor two accounts. I mean i have two mailboxes, one is for receiving emails from friends and colleagues or sending emails to them; the other only for receiving mails from online earning sites.

Same with you, I'm into the habit of deleting not-so-important messages for both email and cellphone once I've read them. Anyway, all they do is just take up space in my cp's memory. Also, i don't have the patience of doing a lot of scrolling when i search for a particular message that's why it's better for me to only keep those that are really needed for future use.

Hi,there.I should say I am exactly the same with you.Each time I recieved my email I would delete it at once after I have read it.This has become an habit for me.And sometimes I even delete some important emails by mistake.So as to the shorts messages I receive.Well, I just can't understand there is anything in my mailbox .

Hi langjipingzong! Wew! too long name. Yes, we're the same. Me too! i delete some important email accidenatlly, then suddenly I think that i need that for reference. But when i see a subject, I already have an idea what its all about, I delete it without reading them. Thanks for the response!! Have a nice day and Happy mylotting..

Hi! I'm totally like you. Since I don't really like to keep useless things around. So I tend to throw or delete messages. Like childish chain mails or something. But if it's really important, I would definitely keep it around. Besides what if my inbox is full of that?? I won't have space for more important messages. Thanks for the topic!

Hi fanficgirl! I agreed.. Useless things around must dispose and not to keep it! Thank you for your nice comment. Have a nice day and Happy mylotting..

I dont delete emails right after reading it. I make folders for my emails and store all my files so I can have reference the moment I need something on it, But in text message, I delete unnecessary text and just leave the most important one on my cp.

I have loads of emails in my inbox and need to take it up as a project and delete all what I do not need. I want to clean up my spam folders as well. I have registered with many sites and so it is really a gigantic task for me to sit and do this cleaning up.
• Hong Kong
15 Apr 10
Hi allknowing! Those site I have registered, I let them stay in my inbox, When i need them, i easily return back to that site by checking my mails. Hope you will clean it soon lol.. Thanks for your response!! Have a nice day and Happy mylotting...

Personally, I would just keep it in my inbox if the email is important. If its one o those notifications stuff, I would just delete it after I read the emails. Same goes for my sms

I thought it is strange that I did it. Glad to know you and many other mylotters are with me. I too don't leave emails and text messages in the inbox for too long. When I read the email/text, if I think that it is useful, then it stays. If not, I delete it immediately. Hope you have a fantastic day. Happy mylotting!
• Hong Kong

Hello cbeee3! That's right! If we think that is not useful anymore, we should delete them, especially in our mobile. Thanks for your response guys!! Have a good day and Happy lotting!!!.

That's what I am also doing I immediately delete it if its not that important emails. If its important like the mails of my company and boyfriend I always move it the separated folder. Same with my phone. I just leave the messages of my boyfriend. Then all the rest will be deleted.

It's mine too. Regardless of whether it's an email, sms, or letterbox mail, I will dispose them off after reading. There really is no use in keeping them unless it is something of value or importance.

Once i have read the emails on the same page,i always delete them to clean up the inbox,as i usually don't have any important things here.i don't want to leave too much rubbish to slow down the computer.

There are a lot of things that I know that I need to delete after I've read them because if I was to save every email that I ever recieved, I would end up with my entire memory on my computer being consumed with email in just a very short period of time. That said, there are also some emails that I don't want to get rid of after I've read them. Most of these types of emails are the ones that I get from friends of mine that I don't have the opportunity to visit with on a regular basis.

Hi SKY, I have the similar habit as well. I feel comfortable to see my mailbox with unread emials as well as some which are worth to keep for further referrence. It's really difficult to find out any useful old emails if the mailbox is messy and full of thousand of old and read mails. Happy posting
