Okay, hold the phone. First of all, I think I have 10 e-mails in my inbox right now because I cannot tolerate unread e-mails. So were some of those from people you know and you just deleted them? How many did you have?
I'm assuming you did that on purpose?? I don't keep things in my "in box" anyway, so it's always clear. I'm a chronic deleter. Same goes for my phone---no excess of text messages or emails---or photos. I deal with them and then they are deleted. Otherwise, I get too overwhelmed.
