One of my e-mail accounts has a message limit of 1000 or so. It takes less
than 12 hours to fill up, if I don't download more regularely from it.
It's just such a chore sorting spam from gold, it's hardly worth keeping the
account going. The ISP even labels some subject lines with SPAM, but their
filtering isn't nearly strict enough and 80% of it goes unlabeled.

E-mail has already been rendered next to useless. Thanks microsoft.
