Headlines
These findings are the result of a survey of 1002 US citizens of working age, who work in office/management roles, and own smartphones. Data is balanced to age and gender proportions found in the general
population.
The survey was conducted from July 29 to August 6, 2019. This survey has been conducted annual since 2015. Where questions are trendable, arrows indicate statistical differences year over year.
This report includes highlighted results. Full results are available to the project team at https://portal.advanis.net/adbe This survey is replicated in other countries and reported separately.

Although up to 5 hours a day is
spent checking email (work +
personal), many feel this is ‘just
right’
---
Work email is checked for 3+ hours a
weekday. (209 minutes, compared to
256 in 2016)
Personal email is checked for 2+ hours a
day (143 minutes in 2019) although it is
being checked less often YoY (162
minutes in 2018, and 209 minutes in
2016)
Millennials are protecting
their personal time for
personal pursuits
---
Half of workers (of all ages) wait
until they get to work to check
work email (but they’re still
reading personal email & social
media before they leave in the
morning. There is also a decline
in the number of people checking
work email when on vacation.
Fewer people are
achieving Inbox Zero -
many think it’s an
impossible goal
---
Those who do (with Millennials
most likely) describe it as
relieving. Half of Millennials hit
Inbox Zero, and only 1/3 of
Boomers.
Only ¼ of offers from
brands are interesting
enough to open - many
suffer from basic quality
concerns, or are sent too
often.
---
Personalization, done right, is
important to many, particularly
for personal emails, but
frustrations continue.

Despite checking work emails for 3+ hours each day, and every
few hours outside of work, most feel their email checking
frequency is ”just right”
Chart Title
Checking Emails Often?
Work emails are checked for 3+ hours +
frequently outside of work
Personal email is checked less often
(and less so than in past years), but
still often checked while at work
• This is consistent across all ages.
• Although the frequency of checking
personal email in total is declining, 31% of
Millennials (and 26% of Gen X) still do so
multiple times per hour or more.
Most people (71%, unchanged YoY for
several years) feel that the time they spend
checking email is “just right”. Millennials
and Gen X are most likely to feel that they
should cut back on checking.

2019 Adobe Email Usage Study

  • 2. © 2019 Adobe. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. Headlines These findings are the result of a survey of 1002 US citizens of working age, who work in office/management roles, and own smartphones. Data is balanced to age and gender proportions found in the general population. The survey was conducted from July 29 to August 6, 2019. This survey has been conducted annual since 2015. Where questions are trendable, arrows indicate statistical differences year over year. This report includes highlighted results. Full results are available to the project team at https://portal.advanis.net/adbe This survey is replicated in other countries and reported separately. 2 Although up to 5 hours a day is spent checking email (work + personal), many feel this is ‘just right’ --- Work email is checked for 3+ hours a weekday. (209 minutes, compared to 256 in 2016) Personal email is checked for 2+ hours a day (143 minutes in 2019) although it is being checked less often YoY (162 minutes in 2018, and 209 minutes in 2016) Millennials are protecting their personal time for personal pursuits --- Half of workers (of all ages) wait until they get to work to check work email (but they’re still reading personal email & social media before they leave in the morning. There is also a decline in the number of people checking work email when on vacation. Fewer people are achieving Inbox Zero - many think it’s an impossible goal --- Those who do (with Millennials most likely) describe it as relieving. Half of Millennials hit Inbox Zero, and only 1/3 of Boomers. Only ¼ of offers from brands are interesting enough to open - many suffer from basic quality concerns, or are sent too often. --- Personalization, done right, is important to many, particularly for personal emails, but frustrations continue.
