Nearly one-quarter of Internet users surveyed in June 2008 for an AOL-sponsored survey by Beta Research Corporation
said they were most likely to check their e-mail upon waking. But more
than one-third said they checked throughout the day, and the rest of
respondents said they checked at various times, including throughout
the night.


More than seven out of 10 employed respondents also said they
checked their personal e-mail at work—and nearly one-third said they
did so more than three times a day.

Nearly 70% of respondents said they had multiple e-mail accounts.

It is no secret that a lot of what arrives in users’ inboxes is
spam, but much is legitimate marketing. More than three-quarters of
online marketers in the US surveyed by the Direct Marketing Association in June 2008 said they used e-mail more than they did three years ago.
