We’re all guilty of it — logging on to the work email while sitting in front of the television on a weeknight, or a few times during the weekend and even while on vacation. Now GFI Software, an email and network security company, has put the email habits of American workers at small and mid-sized businesses into tangible numbers with their survey of 503 employees at such companies.

GFI says it’s clear that email has become a 24/7 cycle. More than 81% of respondents say they check their work email on weekends, 55% check it after 11 p.m. and 59% stay up-to-date with it while on vacation. Sixty-four percent check email during off-hours at least once a day.
