It will always be N-1, where 1 is me.  I tried reading d-u via gmail
for a while, and was silly enough to believe gmail's "so much space
you'll never run out!" theory.  Months later, I had filled half my
quota, entirely with mailing list entries.  But there's no way to
delete more than a page of messages at a time via their web interface
(please, someone, prove me wrong!), so I ended up having to suck down
all of the messages via pop in order to delete them.  If I had had
messages I wanted to keep in gmail, that would have really sucked.

Web interfaces FTL.
