For the past several weeks and likely for another month or two, camp Learfield's IT department has been knee deep in an email project to eliminate those pesky PST archive files. And while we did lots of research and knew the scope of what we were getting involved with; email hoarding at a mind numbing level. I'm still amazed by the magnitude of email collections some have amassed.

I'm talking about Gigabytes and Gigabytes of old email - some users, 20, 30, 50 GB of email and more. Directories containing, 50,000+ emails. It's truly astonishing, the deeply held belief that someday, I just might need one of these to save my butt. Though from what I've seen, I doubt most of them could ever find that needle in their haystacks.

I long ago discovered the delete key on my keyboard - it was just the medicine I needed to liberate myself from that crushing inbox. And in the last 5 years since making that discovery, I can't remember a single incident where I wished I still had all those old messages.
