Fighting E-Mail

I'm fighting a losing battle against e-mail, and spam isn't the problem. Last week, I was so busy in Norway that I neglected to check my "mailing list" account and starred most messages in GMail, rather than responding to them. For the last 6 hours, I've been trying to "unstar" the 75 GMail messages I have (by replying to them) and filter through the 2200 messages in my mailing list account. After 6 hours, I'm down to 62 GMail messages and 1500 from mailing list. This is like a full-time job!

Yup -- eventually you just have to learn to "let go". It's hard though -- I still try to monitor every email for all of OpenSymphony, knowing full well there is no way I can.

I feel your pain. E-mail can really get out of hand at times.

Welcome to my world! It is a never ending battle. I just took my first vacation in two years (not counting the TSSSymps) and I have been behind ever since.
