You've Got Mail may not have been a brilliant movie, but it was a nice sweet romantic comedy which has this line which I've loved ever since I first heard three years ago. It sums up my feelings so completely about receiving e-mail:

"I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go on line, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail.

I hear nothing, not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beat of my own heart. I have mail. From you."

Of course, more often than not nowadays, I'm invariably disappointed. But still, every time I log on, I really do hold my breath...
