I'm much more worried at the moment about Google's "Inbox" project, which looks like it'll bring about the proprietary, unconfigurable approach to algorithmic email sorting, with a lot more incompatible features on top.

my workflow is to just leave emails in the inbox, which is why I was curious. It doesn't matter to me how many of them I have as long as I have enough storage.

@daw Right, that wouldn't work for me, I just get stressed seeing thousands of emails in the inbox :-) Once an email has been replied to or otherwise processed I press "A" in mutt and it moves it to the Archive folder. I then use notmuch to index and search if I need to find it again.

I just don't see read emails by default in my inbox with mu4e, which is effectively the same as archiving, anyway.

@cwebber Yeah, I guess you're right. I just want to have a separate explicit mechanism to mark an email as "processed", just having read it is to implicit for me. Then I'd be afraid of having read it but the forgotten to react to it.
