I take it your job doesn't require you to read & respond to email. There 
are many reasons you might need to find a message from years ago if 
email is a big part of your job. I save almost everything I send but 
only a fraction of what I receive. Even so, the archive for each year's 
email is sometimes many thousands of messages.
