Re: Work Week Driven
@Joe, I definitely know people like that as well. As you stated, it would be interesting to survey employees outside of work email habits.

Re: Work Week Driven
@Ryan: I'm curious to know some data on that. I know some people who are exactly like that -- and others who are "always on" -- checking their work email often as soon as they get up in the morning (even if it's a day off).

Re: Work Week Driven
I'm not so sure about the "puffery" of it considering the evolution of increasingly more "intelligent" networks. It may, potentially, make sense one day, as we work toward true SONs (self-organized networks), to have heightened strictness of certain measures during times when the network is more prone to attack.

Online activity
This is insightful considering that this seems to track with social-media engagement -- which, perforce, is also linked to levels of online activity. Tuesday is typically the biggest day for online engagement, in general.

Re: Work Week Driven
True enough - the threats are a 24-7-365 reality so this is really a puff piece.

New information?
This doesn't seem like new information in terms of when Spam is sent, I could have derived this report from scanning my inbox.  In addition, even after reading the IBM source article, it isn't exactly clear what the originator information means.  Does India lead in sending Spam around the world or as the article implies, Spam tends to be sent from the target email's country of origin which would seem to infer that Indians receive more Spam than any other nationality.  And by quite a large margin.  If this is the case, given how much US offshore development is sourced from India an interesting article would be to use this data to start an examination of the state of security in the Indian Tech sector.
