  1. My day usually tends to start (and at times end) with me checking my email on a tablet or a laptop. If its not work-related emails, its personal emails. I do a lot of freelance work so email is usually my primary source of comms.

    PS. That stat about spam mail being ‘only’ 65% of all email sent throughout the world surprised me – because if I’m not mistaken, this number was around or close to 90% not too long ago!

  2. 65% of all of those spam comments give an average of 13 spam emails per person I wonder who makes up my average. I usually tend to send out few emails per week but I check them everyday – mainlt to check for emails send by other bloggers I’ve subscribed to.
