I’m going on vacation and I don’t want to have a ton of e-mail piled up when I get back. What can I do?
My advice is to let it pile up. If it’s too much, just use your delete key when you get back from vacation. Besides, if you see something good, you’ll be glad you didn’t miss it.
Your other options are to contact each list and see if they have a “vacation” mode they can put you into. Otherwise, you can unsubscribe then re-join when you get back.
A final suggestion is to have your e-mail account disabled. That will cause any e-mail that you get to bounce back to the sender. The only bad thing is that you may be removed from any e-mail lists you’re on (most good e-mail software removes addresses that bounce too many times).
