Therefore it is quiet logical that the amount of emails in the past few years has increased dramatically. According to statistics by the Group from the first quarter of 2006 the number of emails sent per day to be around 170 billion - thereof 70% are spam or viruses!
This relentless bombardment of one email after another on a day-to-day basis results in distraction, stress, addiction and over all in reduced productivity at the workplace. Each new email brings you off focus and away from your important projects and tasks. This problem does not only effect large organizations where the normal workforce gets between 100 and 250 emails a day. All the professional people, business owner and self employed with 50 emails per day are facing the same problems. The cost for the whole Australian economy in lost productivity is far beyond 10 billion dollar.
