Are you one of those people who read every mail??? Oh my...

I have a procmail filter that moves all [k]ubuntu-users mail to a separate
folder. You could do something similar in Thunderbird or in whatever MUA
you use.

As soon as the mails are in another folder, they are no longer in your
inbox. They are no longer your concern. Take a look at them if you have
some spare time, but those emails are no longer important. Inbox Zero!

I currently have 5623 unread emails in my ubuntu-users folder. Do you
think that I care how many there are? Actually I should set up a cron job
that deletes everything older than 30 days. It's all archived on the
Ubuntu servers anyway.
