Email as long-term memory

Simon Wilson says that playing with spotlight made him aware of the fact of how easy to find old password reminders and such. In fact, this is one reason I’ve been keeping my old email around. When I go to, say, buy.com to buy something, and I’ve forgotten my password. I just search email to fetch the original back. Evolution (did I just plug a Novell product?!?!) is quite handy at searching my email and pulling up only what I want to see. Not quite full text, yet, but I’ll use Beagle for that.
