I delete a lot of it :)
I appreciate that it's subjective -- but I really can't deal with the
mailbox index jumping around like that as I delete messages. It just
completely screws up the way my eye tracks down the index. Obviously,
changing mailer is hard, and there are some things which you just take a
while to get used to... but that isn't one of them.
Marking all messages you want to delete with Control+Click first and
deleting them all with Delete isn't an option?
Did you ever realize how much text fits in eighty columns? If you now consider
that a signature usually consists of up to four lines, this gives you enough
space to spread a tremendous amount of information with your messages. So seize
this opportunity and don't waste your signature with bullshit nobody will read.
