My outlook in-box is always kept as empty as possible so any messages that do not meet a rule criteria are easily found and actioned, If the mail is from a source that may be sending regularly then I add a rule and folder to file and classify.

The only messages that are ever actually deleted beyond recovery are spam
I have gmail so every email is kept on there as well just archived out of the inbox

i suppose im a filer and a piler, i scan the sender of each message and the subject line to decide if its worth reading, if its not it gets deleted, everything else gets read, then if its a receipt or soething important it gts filed, otherwise it just sits in the inbox

Hi Guys

I think I'm another of those all three - as work is very much filer / purger, but for personal use - so lasey - wait till there's 2-300 emails then glance through whats needed and delete the rest, file just whats needed,
Will get around to creating conditions for sorting emails soon, as the volume from work is becoming very challenging,

I generally would qualify as a purger, but also filer.

I delete most emails (the irrelevant ones, or unimportant ones) after I read them.
However, I do file the most important ones for reference later.
(GMail saves my ass by keeping most deleted emails... thanks for that!)

This describes me as well. :)

Filer and purger.
My e-mail is sorted into folders by rules before I even read it.
Once read though almost all of it is deleted.
