The study, which was based on data pulled from SimpleRelevance's client email database, also found that men click more frequently in the early morning (4 AM until 9 AM) and women click more frequently in the late morning to evening (10 AM until 9 PM).
Although men and women alike check email regularly, the majority of each gender has one single hour per day in which they actually click through to marketers' websites.
