I archive every e-mail message I have sent since April 1999. Today during making backups of this data I have decided to count how many messages I have sent each year:
The variance is relatively high, but apparently e-mail messages are getting bigger with time (no surprise here), and I have sent less messages than I used to send five to eight years ago.

No, I am not :-). It is just some people are used to communicating over e.g. IRC (such as in RHAT, as I have been told), and some use e-mail as a primary means of communication. I, for example, barely use Jabber, and do not use other messaging tools at all (ICQ, Facebook, IRC, etc.).
Hi Yenya, do you count your private communication and the work one together? I am not able to sum up all my e-mails as I use many different addresses for different purposes -- I am rather curious about statistic of my communication. However (and without any data), I am pretty sure that the proportion of my personal e-mails is diminishing almost to zero in a couple of last years...

Both private and work (I use a single system for both types).
