Half of Britons could not exist without e-mail - with 30 or 40-somethings more addicted than teens, a survey finds.
Fifty per cent of 25 to 34-year-olds told ICM researchers they would not be able to carry on without e-mail.
Forty one per cent of teenagers said they relied on e-mail, while 44% of 35 to 44-year-olds said email was vital.
The South East was the most e-mail-reliant region, with 43% of people telling the poll for software firm Nasstar they relied on it.
Wales was the lowest, with only 34% saying e-mail was vital to them.
Well I am not addicted, however I do rely on email heavily for my business. If it wasnt for my business though I could quite happily get by without email lol.
Although I would say I am addicted to MSN Messenger, its like losing a limb when MSN has problems or theres nobody online lol. BBC News Report
