How many emails do you receive in a typical day? And we mean emails you actually want to receive, or sign up for, not spam.
This could be personal emails from friends or family, it could be newsletters you’ve signed up for, alerts for your favorite online shopping retailers, bills, news, etc. We bet almost everyone in this day and age gets quite a few emails on a daily basis.
Will you tell us in the poll below? As always, we appreciate your responses. And hey, thanks for letting us into your email inbox every day! We appreciate you!
Across five email accounts, between 50 – 100 a day is pretty accurate. It varies up and down, but most of what I get are ads just because I went to a website..
Gmail does a pretty good job of filtering out the spam. Most everything I see in my inbox is of my own doing because I’ve signed up for something that interested me.
I get lots of spam in my hotmail (predecessor to outlook) account. I try to report spam or phishing a lot and many times delete without opening. Trouble is they come right back with a slightly different email address. I recently learned Outlook saves everything left in the inbox for years when I recently ran up against Outlook’s 5 GB storage limit. I had to take extra steps to delete all emails before 2014 in order to get full use of my email account again. Deleting and dumping the trash can periodically doesn’t provide the storage one would think.
I see very few SPAMS. My email client seems to do a good job of catching them. When I open my SPAM folder I see dozens or hundreds that the client redirected from my inbox. I use Gmail.
I don’t trust the “unsubscribe” option, usually because I didn’t subscribe in the first place. I hit the SPAM button. Then the message pops up asking if I would rather “unsubscribe”. Nope. It’s SPAM and that’s why I chose that.
Now getting almost as many spam texts as email spam! Regular texts outnumber email probably 4 to 1.
One thing I learned is to NEVER have text receipts from stores. Was at a campground and stupidly said yes to getting my receipt by text and before we got to our site I had numerous spam texts coming in and marketing texts and calls came in for months. Clearly whatever service they used immediately put my cell number out there for marketers. I did let them know in the office and they seemed surprised and were apologetic.
Never again have I said yes to getting a receipt texted to me.
3-4 daily. That’s enough the rest are text messages.
Grammar Police…. SHOULD READ 10 OR FEWER…..I will stand down, off my soap box now.
I agree, Primo. When I proofed the poll all I saw in edit mode was the text and not the poll itself. Didn’t look at that. Guess I should have, because I would have changed it. Have a great day. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com
I’m actively trying to reduce the number through labeling things “junk,” or unsubscribing to things.
No very many emails, spam or not-spam. When I receive a spam email, I find the link and unsubscribe right then. It stops most for a month or so then they start returning so I do it again.
Be careful of spam emails. Most spam emails are auto-generated and randomly go to thousands of email accounts at one time. Clicking on the email will send your email address to that site and will be redistributed to more spam sites. Best to just delete the email and leave it at that.
I guessed between 11-25 as my Gmail automatically recognizes 99.99% of all spam emails and then stores them into a spam folder. I go into my Gmail once a month to clean out the spam folder. While there, I also dispose of the trash mail that gets collected when not using my laptop and email client.
I still work part-time, hence the 100 or so emails a day.
