Google's Gmail Limits Sent Emails to 500 Per Day

How Many Emails Do You Send a Day?

I've always wondered if Gmail and other free email services put a cap on how many emails you can send per day, and now I have my answer: 500.

Addicted as I am to digital communication, I can't really imagine needing to send that many emails, especially since I have instant messengers (where I probably do hit about 500 sent messages a day!), but it did get me thinking about how many emails I do send per day. With work email and personal email combined, I hit send an awful lot of times each day (though like I said, nowhere near 500). About how many emails do you send per day, and are you sending more for work or play?

If there's nothing worth sending , I don't send emails. I chat thru YM with my family and kin and keep up -to-date in our Friendster profiles. My business doesn't require a lot of emails unless there is an inquiry or complaint. So normally, I send less than 10 emails a day.

Depends on the day but typically over 30. Most of the communication in my company is through email or IM.

We email A LOT at work, so some comes from there, but I email my husband quite a lot too. I voted more than 30, but I'm guessing it's around 50-60 or more.

I probably send about 10-12 emails a day - since I usually send links to my husband & sis a lot.

It can be a lot depending on the threads we get going. We will send out emails to everyone and we can get some funny conversations going while all of us are in front of our desk

looks like I average sending just a touch over 30 a day. That's pretty much all work related. I also do quite a bit of IM and TM'ing. If those weren't an option I would imagine my sent emails would be much higher. Gmail probably puts a cap of 500 to keep people from using their service to send out bulk email. Nothing kills a server more than having people send out blasts of email in 1000 recipient chunks.

Well, a lot of the time my communication gets done via IM, forums, Facebook, cell phone and so on. The actual e-mails I sent today was 3, but I talked to my sisters and my mother for an hour on Skype- and talked to friends and family on Meebo as well.

About 60. I've emailed more since I got my Blackberry and that's only work, not including Gmail.
