This evening I was looking for an email I sent several months ago and noticed the thousands of emails in my sent box. Out of curiosity I decided to make a couple charts of sent and received messages. Take a look at the results

Sent Email 2009 – 2012

Email sent 2009-2012

Email sent 2009-2012

Email received 2009 – 2012

Email Receive 2009-2012

Email Receive 2009-2012

Keep in mind that these results include only legitimate email and do not include emails such as notices from websites like Facebook and Twitter. If I had included those the recent received totals would have been drastically higher.

No wonder I had to turn on an auto-responder…
