Someone in the email marketing industry (who is known, among other things, for sending out really good chocolates every Christmas) asked me if we had an update to this old blog post from 2009: Major Email Provider Trends: Yahoo and Hotmail Tops, Gmail Catching. I like it when he sends me chocolate, so I thought we better provide an update:
Back in 2009, Gmail was a distant 3rd, but trending up. Now, Gmail’s right there with Hotmail and Yahoo. Sorry, but there are a few months there where we kinda had an oopsie and forgot to track Gmail for this study. But you still get a good picture of how far gmail has come. C’mon, it’s at least good enough to earn my chocolates, Mr.Brownlow.
For those of you who prefer data in table format:
Each month, you see how many emails are sent through MailChimp to the webmail domains above. Kind of gives you an idea of how much email MailChimp is sending these days (about 2 billion per month).
