Emails 'are the office timewaster'
Emails have gone from being a useful office tool to a curse that takes up huge amounts of work time, it was claimed yesterday. The average employee now spends an estimated 90 minutes to two hours a day wading through hundreds of messages, much of which is spam and junk mail.And yet I still notice people 'boasting' about just how many emails they have in their inbox. Still, if you make something effortless it's use is bound to increase. A single mouse click and your missive flies off to thousands of unsuspecting victims at a stroke. Progress? Bah!
Worldwide email traffic has hit 196 billion messages a day, according to the research firm the Radicati Group. It is predicted to reach 374 billion per day by 2011.
