Spam Infiltrates Business
A staggering one in seven of e-mails received by businesses can now be classed as spam according to a new investigation by Message Labs. Workers are spending up to 10% of their working day dealing with irrelevant e-mails, with one of the key problems being people's inability to define what is spam and also what isn't.

Message Labs questioned 160 IT directors and managers across the UK, with spam not only raising productivity issues but also data storage.

Whist at first glance comparisons to a similar survey carried out in the States show the UK to have a lesser problem, it becomes more of a concern when considering how much more mature the US online market is.

Currently 3 in every 10 mails received by Stateside businesses constitutes spam, and in the UK we're very firmly heading in that direction at the moment.

Meridion can advise on the most appropriate method, given the volume of email received, to protect and ensure a productive employee environment. contact us here
