Empty Inbox!

Usually I sort incoming mails into folders immediately, besides the ones that require some kind of action or a reply, which I leave in my inbox (I sometimes even pull automatically sorted emails back into the inbox if I want to remind myself to act upon them). This means there are always some messages in my inbox, usually between 10 and 30, depending on my workload and other factors. Some of these emails can get very old in there, years in some cases where I just don't find the right mindset for a reply.

I am leaving for holiday tomorrow and wanted to answer some of these long waiting emails before that. The basis was laid already a few months ago when I decided to declare as abandoned some private email threads that have been waiting for multiple years, but now the impossible has happened:

Empty Inbox! I can't remember if this has ever happened before since I started using email in ... 1995 I guess.

How do you handle your inbox?
