Email surge

During most of August, thanks to slow internet traffic and more time to clean up my desk, I was able to contain the size of my mailbox to about 50 or less. Now, with the new semester starting, in spite of my efforts the number of messages has shot up to over 100.

Email seem impossible to contain more than temporarily. It's like malaria --with constant care, it's possible to contain it in spite of occasional feverish bouts, but it's always threatening to overwhelm at the next crisis.
