Email programs in 2009 were still a bit clunky to set up. The by far most popular email clients were still Outlook 2000, 2003 and 2007. An impressive percentage of around 5% were iPhone emails on iPhone 1 and 2, although mostly consumer emails and not business emails. But this number was far higher than for Lotus Notes and Entourage usage. Even Blackberry experienced a heavy decrease in use.
