EDIT: final long-after afterthought (8/10/10). She's still dogging me (I've given up hoping she'll stop) but I've been mostly successfully ignoring her. But I just wanted to mention re: the question of "why I would save" e-mails. #1 I'm lazy, #2 hotmail's storage capacity appears to be infinite, and #3 the police recommended it. Even if they hadn't, though, the lazy alone is enough. I still have every e-mail sent to that address - what's the point spending hours going through and messing with old e-mails in a 95% empty inbox? There's just too much room, it seems like the room is infinite. I guess it's possible there are some people who do get that obsessive about tidying electronic space, but to me, what a weird idea that is.
