How many hours do you spend on email a day? Now, what does that translate to in a week, month, year? My rough estimate for me is:
3.5 hours a day x 5 days in a week = 17.50 hours a week, x 4 weeks in a month, 70 hours a month x 12 months a year = 840 hours a year.
In other words, 35 full 24 hour days spent sending, reading, replying by email, or 105 8 hour working days every year.
What if you could shave off 1 hour a day? It would be worth a price!

Get a lot of spam? CloudMark Desktop is the easiest $30 I’ve ever spent – catches 98% of all our spam. Saves hours a week. My delete button’s life span doubled.
Productivity experts recommend reading and taking care of an email all at once – instead of reading it, flagging it for taking care of later, reading the next one, marking it for later, etc. Read it, and either file it or reply – this saves time and reduces your workload.
