Gmail purging

I just whittled it down from 68MB to 31MB 16MB in my Gmail account. (I’m not done, either – I’ll continue some other time.) Why? I’d hate to get to 1000MB of usage. I mean, how would I back all that up?

  1. Hm…I use that as basically my primary email account (besides my school email) and what’s odd is I only have 5 MB filled up. It’s interesting to see how much information I get from other places.


  2. If anything, it’s attachments that I should delete or archive on my system. I cut my 31MB in almost half again tonight by doing just that. I think the people who use Gmail and use a lot of their space simply hoard too much. They do give you 1000MB, so the ability is there and I don’t blame them.
