So I've been using GMail for a very long time (as I'm sure all of you do too, and if you don't... START). But ever since I've gotten my account, I receive my e-mails and leave them in my inbox. I've currently got 1519 e-mails in my inbox. I was just wondering, what's the difference between keeping all of my e-mail in my inbox as opposed to archiving them all instead? Is there no difference? Does it just make the inbox clear, so you don't have to look at those old e-mails? What are the advantages to archiving vs. not archiving?
