5823... I used to have way more because of LKML, but I deleted them (100 hundred at a time). I think I peaked out at over 30,000, IIRC.

Corsin: are you a rat pack for emails ?

Corsin Camichel [PersonRank 10]

No, I just don't delete :o)

And I would love a filter/rule with the option to "Skip my inbox" AND "mark emails as read"

Point noted Sohil!!

With AU/JP and NZ offerinig Open gmail accounts. I am certain that userbase will gain traction.. this is certainly interesting space to watch, beause google is literally coming outside the box!!

Everyone once in a while you hear about a group of people having their gmail accounts shutdown, ironically it usually involes all their friends as well. This got me thinking about the structure of gmail accounts. I think gmail approaches accounts the same way they approach emails, in a conversation form. By having an invite only system, gmail has prevented the widespread abuse of their email system. I bet that when you view spam the majority will come from either a hotmail/yahoo server (I have no hard proof of this, just what I've observed, take this statement with a grain of salt) When you have an open system it can be very hard to track the existing spam network. You can close one account, but you can't see the hundreds other account the spammer has set up. With a converstation system, you can see the entire chain and cut it off at the head.

On subject: I'd be curious to see what the actually trend is for new accounts each month.

But I use GMail as my rss reader. I use rssfwd.com to send it and have it all filtered to different labels :). I like it better than all the other rss readers.

When I search for those that aren't rss I get 1-20 of thousands. It doesn't tell me the actual amount.

Ah I figured it out, just looked at the rss label.
only 3818 real mails.

I also agree with Corsin, being able to mark emails as read from a filter would be really helpful

Corsin,

>> And I would love a filter/rule with the option to "Skip my inbox" AND "mark emails as read"

Just create a filter with whatever rules you want, and in the "Has the words:" field enter "in:inbox AND xyz"

It works like magic!

I use it to send all my SPAM directly to trash. Here is my rule for it:

Matches: in:spam
Do this: Forward to spamawards[put at-character here]gmail.com, Skip Inbox, Delete it

=)

It's impossible to work. A mail that just arrives is not yet in your inbox.

Sorry. It works, but how do you mark it as read?

I don't think it is possible to do it automaticaly, but here is my trick:

1. Create a label named "Unread" and another one named ABC (the second's name doesn't matter)
2. Create a filter with "in:unread -in:inbox" and apply the filter ABC to it
3. Check the label ABC, "Select All" and "Mark as read"
4. Repeat #3 as neccesary
