...of lots of emails that were cluttering up my inbox!
Okay, so I'm feeling a lot lighter now, even though I may still try to follow up with Earthlink and Apple and see if there is a way to salvage the deleted emails.... Thanks to Andrea for the good idea about having a back up... I will now create a gmail address just for this purpose! Only the important stuff! Otherwise, it's "SEE YA" to lots and lots of emails.... No worries, I have a "let go and let it fly" attitude about this whole thing!
Thanks to everyone who sent their comments about it and to Brigitte for letting me get it off my chest this morning!
