Mobile E-Mail Marketing Gets Skimmed

JULY 18, 2007

The PC's killer app meets the small screen.

E-mail users read their messages in a different way on mobile phones than on PCs, according to ExactTarget's "E-Mail Marketing for the Small Screen" report. Nearly nine in 10 mobile e-mail users skimmed messages on their phones, and then read the full version on desktop or laptop computers.

Smartphone users mainly checked mobile e-mail to stay connected and read urgent messages, but rarely read commercial e-mails.

37 Stress Management Tips

By Michael Castleman

Alternatives to Anxiety


Stress is a fact of life, but being stressed out is not. We don't always have control over what happens to us, says Allen Elkin, Ph.D., director of the Stress Management Counseling Center in New York City, and yet, that doesn't mean we have to react to a difficult, challenging situation by becoming frazzled or feeling overwhelmed or distraught. Being overly anxious is not just a mental hazard; it's a physical one too. The more stressed out we are the more vulnerable we are to colds, flu, and a host of chronic or life-threatening illnesses. And the less open we are to the beauty and pleasure of life. For your emotional and bodily benefit, we've consulted experts and come up with 37 easy, natural alternatives to anxiety. Enjoy!

Hold the breath for a few seconds, then exhale slowly. Repeat several times.
