Here are some reasons that non-possessed souls may want to keep email in
binders:

1) Lack of disk space (admittedly rare these days, but possible).
2) So other people can have access to it easily, even if they aren't on the
network.
3) Because they are signed on to a mailing list at a work and want to take
the material home and study it.
4) Because they are keeping lists of mailing list addresses and URLs and
using these is easier when looking at paper than switching windows on a
'puter.

Just a few random thoughts on a Friday....
