Email has touched every aspect of our lives since it’s inception over 45 years ago. There hardly seems to be an area of our lives where email doesn’t come into play. It has touched both our work and personal lives revolutionizing how to communicate with each other. We even have to login to social platforms, like Facebook or Twitter using our email address and a password.
Email is firmly part of our individual identity. It is a place that we go to online, to communicate, learn, keep up to date with things, and find out our latest passions. 205 billion emails whizz across our planet every day. They bring us joy, hope, knowledge, love, offers of work, document and contracts, and useful information. Love it, or hate it, email is ubiquitous in our lives, and it doesn’t look like it is going to be replaced anytime soon.
