Too busy to archive your email?

The volume of emails just keeps growing but, according to our recent survey, they're not all getting neatly filed. The percentage of respondents archiving email since we surveyed readers a year ago has dropped from 52% to 45%, even as compliance requirements and regulations have increased archiving awareness. However, 61% of those not archiving email say it's on their to-do list vs. 58% listing that as their top reason last year. Thirty-two percent of those surveyed don't do it because their company doesn't require it, while 28% say they don't have the budget to archive (note: respondents could choose more than one option). Of those who are archiving, 68% apply it to all email, while 23% archive based on end user. The primary reason for respondents to archive their email is to be prepared for any legal issues (35%), followed closely by the need to better manage storage capacity (30%).
