Without really thinking I opened an email client on a laptop that I rarely use, which it turns out is still configured to check an email account that was part of a broadband connection that was cancelled in December of 2002. Well, apparently, rather than going to the place where old discontiniued email accounts are supposed to get, this one which I had used for a good 7 years before (Initially started off as a dialup account) has found a way to stay active. A little neglected, but still active. The last 30 or so messages with warning messages that email was being rejected becuase the mailbox was full with a rapidly decreasing byte count. Amazingly enough, I don't think there was a single message that was not some sort of spam. 10021 messages worth! Think back now, I probably shouldn't have just delete them all as I did with great joy, but instead saved the info for some thesis on the evolution of spam. Maybe next time.
