As part of migrating everything to the new server, I’m trying to clean out my mailbox on the old server. I had thought I had forwarded all of the email accouns I used to my Gmail account, as part of a project to consolidate all of my email at one address. (Previously I had many, many email addresses. This eventually became the cause of much stress and angst, even though they were mostly forwarded to one mailbox.) Anyway, I started to tar the contents of my home directory and discovered that
Maildir a lot of email. I opened the mailbox with Thunderbird and discovered about 8100 unread emails, roughly 8090 of which are SPAM. The remainder of the emails are stuff I probably should have responded to a long time ago. I hate email.
