Re: Work Week Driven
Agreed around your IBM assessment. Unfortunately though, just because something seems logical doesn't mean the data will always support that. I do think resources could have been better utilized elsewhere instead of this study. Now that data confirms "Spammers' favorite day of the week", besides the fun factoid, there really won't be any difference in day to day security activities so what was the point.

Re: Work Week Driven
Don't know about commercial, but in general makes perfect sense.  Long weekends can translate into a Friday off or a Monday off, so T-W-Th are the days when maximum number of workers are IN the office doing their work.  It should not have taken IBM to mount a huge study to figure out this basic fact.

Work Week Driven
It's not surprising that the trend correlates with the corporate work week. A large majority of employees would not check their work email outside of the office. I wonder for commercial email domains if there is any discernable trend?
