The Shape of Email

Email is everything to us. Our research shows that it means a lot to IT managers and end users, too. It helps them to share, collaborate and search for information.  But it also burns time, causes problems and costs money.  This site is a commentary on research undertaken by Mimecast to help inform these issues and encourage debate about how the ‘shape of email’ is changing.

On this site, there are reports to download, infographics that summarize key data and analysis of trends relating to email quality, management and use.

The shape of email is a starting point in helping us understand the quality of information residing in the inboxes of email users across the world. Through the research we can see indications of what influences the value of an inbox, the impact of email behavior on end user productivity and how new channels, such as social media, are impacting the way we use email. It’s an information tool for IT professionals and email fanatics alike.
