A friend of mine called me the other day asking for email help. He said that of his three accounts in Mail.app, only the Gmail account was showing. When I opened his Mac, this is what I found: Now, not even my SPAM riddled Yahoo account, which I haven't used for years now, has that many unread messages. Since this was setup as an IMAP, this means that those 40,000+ messages are truly unread (i.e. not 40,000+ newly downloaded messages, it truly is 40,000+ UNREAD messages). Consider also that Gmail has one of the most effective SPAM filtering mechanisms in the world, this is probably the most incredible computer related scenes I've ever come across. I just had to take a picture of it to share with you guys. And here I thought that I was bad with my 300+ unread messages. I started this thread because maybe other MUGgers out there have similarly incredible but true email stories. I don't think anyone can top this though.
