How Big Is Your Inbox?

As an Analyst, I like to track trivial things, such as how much toilet paper I use and how much gas my car consumes.  

One of the less personal and perhaps more company oriented metrics is the size of my Outlook inbox at work. In fact, you can see in early December when the IT department made me aware of the consequences of keeping a lot of mail in the inbox.

You can see that it continued to grow over the summer until I realized that the auto-archive process on the new computer was not running from April to August.  With only a few data points since, I hope to keep the inbox size on a downward slope.

So, what is the point?  The point is if you live in your inbox, you must monitor it’s size or else you may pay the consequences.

So, how big is your inbox?
