No one uses it

One of the largest IT services outfits in Europe, Atos is killing off internal e-mail.

CEO Thierry Breton said that less than 15 percent of the 200 e-mails his staff received were any good and they were wasting between 5 and 20 hours a week handling e-mail. He wants staff to use instant messaging and other chat-like communications media, because no one ever wasted time on chat.
