The Mail of the Beast

6666 Messages

So I keep a lot of messages in my inbox. Mail.app on the Mac rolls that way – with lightning-fast searching by keyword in any field, I have a system where I flag messages for follow-up (or now, with Leopard, using the ‘to-do’ flag). Long story short is that I keep *everything* in the main inbox for ease of access along with some project-based smartfolders. When our Exchange system reminded me that I was over the space allocation and with Trotz 2.0 due any moment now, I was doing some housekeeping this afternoon to archive off to my local drive all of my September messages. That left me with 6,666 messages in my inbox. Coincidence? Good thing this didn’t happen on Wednesday – that would have been far too spooky. Of course, having been born on June 6, 1966 (6/6/66) also makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up as well.
