E-mail answering is becoming a chore, according to the findings of a survey by The Consumer’s Association in the UK. The results were part of a survey on Internet use among the UK population.

Although respondents cited e-mail as their main reason for logging on to the net, their main reason for using the Web was information sources, with 23% of citing this as their surfing incentive.

21% of Internet users logged for e-mail, while only a pathetic 2% find online shopping drawing them online.

The results published in by Which? also revealed that 45% of UK Internet users are women, up 6% from last year.

With two thirds of respondents claiming face-to-face conversations as their favourite means of communications, e-mail seems to have lost some of its gloss.
