As an example:
I was away from 12/25-12/31. I unsubscribed from the DX Reflector as 
that one usually has the most "noise." I came home to 497 e-mails 
(cq-contest, wf1b-rtty, dx4win, and towertalk)!
Actually, it only took about 20 minutes to go thru them all. I have 
them filtered and sorted so that personal e-mails come to a different 
folder than Reflector mail. Reflector mail is sorted by subject and 
date, so it was pretty easy to bulk delete anything that didn't look 
interesting. The definition of "interesting" varies depending on the 
number of e-mails waiting in the mailbox :.)
