In a recent Radicati release, stats from the study¬†“Messaging & Collaboration – Business User Survey, 2008” show that corporate users on average are spending up to 25% of their working day sending and receiving email, receiving over 100 emails a day and sending 38 on average.

With a quarter of the average person’s working day spent handling email, how can any IT Infrastructure Business unit ignore that Email is mission critical to most corporate organisations. Yet, that is still, on occasion the very words I have heard.

While the sample for this survey was only 105 business users, it also highlights that email isn’t making way too quickly for the newer Web2.0 technologies.¬†

Not to say they aren’t increasing in popularity, it’s just that 25% of your day is still email. (I’d say more from my experience)
