Emails that Expire

Rohit Bhargava in his blog posting : Idea Bar: Self Destructing Emails has an interesting idea about how to make emails that you need to receive but dont need to keep in your inbox for ever manageable.

The key question is here who should make this happen. Is it the reader of these emails or is it the sender of these emails.

My take: When you setup the account and agree to receive these notifications then you should have the option to set the emails to destruct and have the ability to choose the period you want to keep them. Blog software can have a default option for these notifications to just expire and delete.

Network Solutions Email has the ability to set your outgoing email to expire in minutes, hours or days.

Some interesting thoughts and discussions in these posts : and on WebmasterWorld.
