Me too!
I save them into categorized mailboxes until a topic has kind of
run out. Then that mailbox goes to a special folder on my desktop (within
Documents Folder). After that gets pretty full I save it to a separate disk
and clear my poor 'puter's brain.
I wonder if I'll ever go through the older stuff. But I do go back
for a while.
