The problem with that is, I hardly have time to do that. If I archive something I want to read before I actually read it, I will forget about it. So, there are times, I mark it as read and leave it in my inbox to remember to read it, because once I've looked at my inbox I don't want it to tell me I have new mail when I already know it's there. So, it must at least be marked as read.
Then, there are times a message will sit in my inbox for several days before I get to it. There are times I get frustrated and just archive it and of course it's forgotten. It's kind of a vicious cycle.
I need my inbox empty, though.
