During her press appearance today, Hillary Clinton acknowledged that about 60,000 emails, including sent and received, went through her home email server that she used during her tenure as secretary of state. About half of those, she said, were work related. UPI reports:
Clinton explained the vast majority of her emails went to .gov accounts, ensuring they would become public record, and that she voluntarily released 30,000 of 60,000 emails on the clintonemail.com server. She also asked the State Department to make all her emails available to the public, giving "unprecedented insight" into a high government official's daily duties.
According to the State Department website, Mrs. Clinton began serving as secretary of state January 21, 2009 and her final day was February 1, 2013, a total of 1,473 days. This comes to about 20.3 emails per day, including weekends. Although most top government officials are on call seven days a week, even excluding weekends the average comes to 28.5.
Based on a 2012 Fortune article, the average email user gets 147 email messages a day.
