Before e mail I did not keep a copy of every letter I ever sent, or record every phone call I ever made, and never worried about it, so why am I feeling apprehensive about deleting all the e mails I have ever sent which are clogging up my computer? (Expressive word clogging.)
The answer to why I keep them is because I can. I can archive them, put them on an external hardrive, or on a 'cloud' somewhere, but they would still be taking up a teeny tiny space in my head. (The 'cloud' solution is not quite as pretty as it sounds of course. See here.)
Because I can doesn't neccessarliy mean I should, and under the influence of Marie Kondo (see Friday posts recently) I'm about to press the delete button, unless you can give me a good reason to keep them?
'In case' or 'Just because' says Kondo, are not good reasons....
