Probably going to make a few enemies.

There has been a LOT of chatter about e-mail lately. I've read it and 
kept my mouth shut, so far.

For the information of many. Not responding to any one person in 
particular. However, you know what they say about shoes fitting.

There are a lot of people in this world that are not so anal retentive 
that they:

Feel they _HAVE_ to keep _EVERY_ e-mail they've ever received.
Feel they _HAVE_ to neatly pigeon hole _EVERY_ e-mail into it's nice 
neat little box.
Feel they _HAVE_ to thread all their e-mail.
Clutter up their online e-mail in-box with all the stuff they download 
and filling up their ISP's e-mail server with all the old mail they have 
already downloaded and read.

[ Shrinks say that some of the above behavior is a sign of a sick mind ]

Some people DO: [ GASP ]

Download their e-mail from the server and delete off the server.
Read the e-mail that comes in AND:
    Keep the bits and pieces that they feel important.
    Respond to what they feel they must.
    DELETE everything else.
Read their mail online from their ISP deleting as they go.

[ I know this may be hard for some to believe but they do ]

Of the hundred or so e-mail lists I'm on there are only two or three 
that don't identify in the subject line. Not identifying is NOT "The 
Standard". Identifying seems to be more standard than not.

Now IF someone could give the OP a _REAL_, non-personal opinion, 
non-emotional, answer to her question it might be nice.

GEEZ, just jump on a person for asking a simple question.
