Dutch Email Providers

Per a national email survey from Spotler Gmail and Hotmail (Outlook.com) are neck and neck as the most used email providers in the Netherlands.

While national providers like KPN and Ziggo are most popular among the older Dutch population.

Answer to which e-mail providers do you use in the Netherlands?

60% of people surveyed said they used Gmail, and another 60% said they used Hotmail.

Let’s remember that most people have more than one email account.

Some exciting conclusions, especially for web marketers, are the following:

  1. More than half of the Netherlands reads their emails on a smartphone
  2. 88% of Dutch people subscribe to at least one email newsletter in the past year
  3. 73% have bought something at least once in the past year due to a mailing list.

#2 and #3 are a result of email communication being considered a more diverse communication channel than social media. Primarily the subscription to email newsletters for discounts, brand interest, and a surprise when it’s your birthday.

Cloud Business Email Market to double by 2024

The cloud business email market will double by 2024. Led by GSuite (Google) and Office365 (Microsoft) — business email is expected to grow from $40 billion to $80 billion in just four years per a study by Radicati.

If your company is still maintaining on-premise infrastructure, you might be missing out on:

  • Lower deployment and implementation costs
  • A smaller IT department
  • Predictable ongoing costs
  • Refocusing IT resources for more valued projects
  • Higher uptime and a better product

With companies like open-Xchange via OX App Suite, Icewarp, and Zoho bringing different variables into the mix ( opensource, privacy, price points), the business email wars will be heating up in the next coming years.

German Email Providers

The business market in Germany has always been fascinating to me — Email providers are no different. The main email providers in the German Email Market: Deutsche Telekom & United Internet AG (WEB.DE, GMX, Freenet.de, Strato)  launched “E-mail made in Germany” initiatives in 2013 and those efforts have not been in vain.

Per a study by Convios Consulting GmbH around 67% of German Internet users have their main email inbox provided by a German Provider. Das ist gut!

GMX (25.3%), WEB.DE (23.9%), Gmail (14.8%), Outlook (9.3%), T-Online (8.4%), 1&1 (3.6%), Freenet (2.5%)

The Global Email Market

The email market keeps growing at a steady pace and will reach nearly 5 billion users by 2024.

It was in October of 2018 that Gmail announced it had reached 1.5 billion active accounts: https://twitter.com/gmail/status/1055806807174725633

The worldwide email user market also follows suit. According to the Radicati Group, email is expected to grow to 4.4 billion unique users by 2024. 

Email accounts are also expected to reach 1.86 accounts per person. I, for one, already have five (two business and three personal).
