One method of managing the volume of email is to use a service such as gmail
from google or set up folders and have the mail directed there.

The advantage of gmail at google is simply that this whole tread appears as
a folder and I can archive or delete the entire folder at any time.

Thus I get about 10 emails a day from the list, sorted into folders by type.

If this interests you I have 50 accounts to 'give away' each with 2Gigabytes
of free storage as the email is web based.

If interested, contact me off list.
