There are countless myths out there when it comes to email; Monday is the best day to send an email, morning emails get faster responses, social media is replacing email, and of course, email is dead.

And up and up goes that summit—as well as the risk of torturing this metaphor. The point is you are going to miss on a lot of business if you don’t start paying attention to mobile traffic. ...
