How broken is email? It's so broken. It's so so overwhelming destroyed by spam that I may give it up entirely. After less than 72 hours away from my computer, I have over 5,000 messages, and it took three hours to download them all. A week away from the computer could mean a full-day of downloading and digging out. And anything more time off than that could be an irrecoverable situation, where I could just never get through all the old crap and get back on track. Argh. (And yes, I'm using SpamAssasin and all kinds of complicated filtering, etc.)
