IIRC, you mentioned yesterday you were subscribed to 100 mailing lists which you read in 2 hours. With an
average of 50 mes./day on a mailing list, that leaves us with 5000 emails.
5000/120 makes it to 40 messages a minute. So you reach the average of 1.5 s
per message. You're damn good ! I really 'd like to know how you make it. Even
if you drop all the messages, you're at 3s/msg.
