Om Malik reported the Radicati Group 's email forecast.Here's the Radicati Group view between 2006 and 2010:




Active email boxes

1.4 billion

2.5 billion

Instant Messaging accounts

 0.94 billion

1.4 billion

Emails sent for corporate users

16.4 Mbytes/person/day

21.4 Mbytes/person/day

Percent SPAM



Wireless email users

14 million

228 million

I believe some of these forecast elements need some discussion. Only 500 million more IM accounts? What about those with multiples? I've got a AIM, Skype, Yahoo! Messenger and my enterprise IM account, or is that already factored into this list. What about mobile IM?

I find it hard to believe that there is SO MUCH SPAM out there. Surely, we'll get better tools to destroy SPAM before it even gets to my inbox?
