I have several gmail accounts.

One that I receive mail from the sites I'm on I keep fairly clean. Don't need to retain most of the mail.

Another, actually the first I ever had, I've allow to retain almost all the mail - except the spam of course.
There's only about 880mgb used there.

One can always go back to the last page and do a bulk clean up when you're really bored?

My gmail is almost empty and i havent checked it in almost 2 weeks. (I receive little to no mail there). My other Mailbox is maybe half its daily limit and its been the same amount of time. (256 or 512 mb download/upload a day. I forget. since both are used as POP3 neither is stored on the server.)

I keep mine clean. Like 1 or 2 percent full if that?...

I like to delete the junk. Just because you CAN keep it all does not mean you have to.

Generally, if I consider a conversation important enough to keep, I star it. Periodically, I just select all unstarred messages and delete.

About once every month or two, I go through my starred list to make sure there's nothing worthless in there.
If you truly live by the sword, it only stands to reason that someone has to die by it.

I clean up my primary G-mail account at least once a day, since it is very busy; those messages I wish to keep I then download to Thunderbird. I have agree with CGM3: "Just because you CAN keep it all does not mean you have to."
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I'm at about 76% capacity. No, I'm not Mr. Popular or even Mr. Never-Deletes-Anything. I use my gmail account(s) as online storage for files that I may need should bad things ever happen (lost in Siberia at a Starbucks, etc.).

I have maybe 13 messages, the rest is all GMFS (GMailFileSystem) stuff.
