What annoys me most about email is that most of the time everyone sends you either something that you have already seen or something that you don't want to see. What happened to the quality emails, the good stuff, people want to actually get something out of their email account, for example my student email account is full of crazy junk from the postmaster that last I checked most people dont need.
