Your business is losing hundreds of hours to spam every year

Everyone hates spam.

But because the spam filters are so good these days, maybe you feel like it’s not a big problem for your business?

 Wait till you hear this. A new report revealed everyone on your team could waste up to 80 hours a year, scrolling through and deleting spam emails.

Between 45 and 85 per cent of all emails sent every day are spam.

Researchers calculated someone who only gets 30 external emails a day will probably waste about 5 hours a year.

It’s the business owners and managers whose time is mostly wasted. If you get more than a hundred external emails a day, you’ll spend 80 hours a year sorting and reporting them.


Add that up across your team and it’s a productivity killer. There are settings in your email service to help protect you from more spam.


Training can also help your team spot a spam message faster – and could stop them from clicking on bad links.

 Can we help review your email and make some suggestions? Get in touch, call us on 03330 509625 or fill out our form.

Our email wasn’t performing very well so we asked Hamilton Systems to take a look & Carl proposed to migrate us to MS Exchange.

Carl was very helpful throughout & the migration went very well.

He was on hand to sort out any teething issues, taking calls early morning & into the night, to ensure we were up & running smoothly.

Would recommend for knowledge, attention to detail & great customer service.”
