I keep the last 10 weeks in my folder (and archive the rest.) That's 70
days worth, and I have 78,109 emails currently in that folder. OK, it's
been a while since I last took the average. It appears to be 1114 emails
per day now. I blame the extra 300 emails a day being the stable updates :-D

I was about to say "then include the security@ mailing list". ;-)

It's still not a private one. But for those that do not know about that
mailing list, yeah, private is fine. But that's not really the focus of
this discussion.
