Overcoming the Barriers to Emptying my Email Inbox
I would like to at least experience what it is like to empty my gmail inbox. However something always seems to stop me doing this.
I think that the biggest thing that stops me is that if I delete an email, it will make it awkward to retrieve later should the unexpected happen. What if I needed a deleted email to get an address or phone number? Does gmail auto empty trash after a while? Is the trash searchable on an iphone?
Someone recommended that instead of deleting mail, in gmail it can be 'Archived'. This means you still have it but it won't show in your inbox. Sounds good but on the iphone mail app has no way to archive messages, just delete them.
Any advice would be appreciated.
