Macintosh Business Unit
(MacBU) has commissioned a survey regarding the habits and styles people have when it comes to what goes in and out of their e-mail inbox.
Among the findings released today and highlighted on the MacBU Web site are a universal problem with e-mail attachments. Mainly, people forget to include them. Almost half of survey respondents said that forgetting to include their document attachment was their most common e-mail mistake. Other frequent goofs included misspelling words and replying to all instead of to the sender only; each of these gained almost a third of the votes.
The survey also shows that baby boomers lead the paperless revolution. More than 40 percent of those who keep track of their addresses in an electronic address book belong to the baby boomer generation. Survey results also revealed that nearly one-third of total respondents who use e-mail consult electronic address books when connecting with family and friends.
The survey is online if you’d like to take it yourself.
