Perhaps this might give you a tiny bit of insight into my quirky personality?
Yes, you read that right, I have 32,911 emails in my inbox. I'm pretty sure Rob might have 10. It doesn't bother me in the least. Someday I might need to reference that email that some strange person sent me in 2006, right? I occasionally delete all of my facebook notifications that come through my email, and I delete any adds that come through that I don't want to look at when I'm just trying to get through all of my messages. But other than that, I just let them sit.
Of course, it's not entirely uncommon for me to mark a message that I need to respond to as 'unread', and then forget that it ever existed amidst my sea of utterly important emails. Are you an email hoarder or an email purger? I'm sure there are many of you that would have a panic attack just looking at my inbox!
Many couples find it feasible to share an email account. We, for obvious reasons, are not one of them!
