After 83 days I need to empty the trash :-)

No this isn't a reference to my home life and the fact the refuse is collected today.

I've been running an experiment. Since my move to Exchange 2007 I've had a bigger mailbox, so I tried not emptying my deleted items folder to see how long it would take before the new mailbox filled up. This morning I signed into OWA at home to check my calendar and got the message that my mailbox was nearly full. Nice attention-getter, and a much better mail from the server. With so many items arriving by RSS a large proportion of the mail in my deleted Items never gets marked as read ... but I was surprised the counter got past 6000.

    I read in Outlook. I like to view items as individual bits, and have all the stuff which is piled up to read in one place.

    Outlook doesn’t seem to integrate perfectly with the common feed list.

    Teething troubles with the new phone have proved to be pretty minor. I’m finding more things to love

    Hi James,

    Just a quick question regarding RSS feeds.  Do you prefer to read your feeds within Outlook or IE?  The problem I have with Outlook is that it doesn’t update IE with the feeds to mark them as read.
