Why do they recommend to download and delete old emails?

@bn4t

These are actually our recommendations, and we will publish some short articles about this topic.

Deleted e-mails can't be leaked or accessed by unauthorized parties. Most people don't keep their physical mail in their physical mailbox either. For instance, there is no reason to store 2-year-old e-mails. However, some people never delete their e-mails.
