Men are the biggest bullies when it comes to sending 'flamemail' - emails that are meant to harass or abuse colleagues - according to survey results published this week.
Over half of the 1,043 people polled claimed to regularly receive abusive emails, while a further 25 per cent said they knew of colleagues who regularly receive flamemails. According to the report, sponsored by Novell, men are five times more likely than women to 'flame' others.
Superiors and immediate managers are common senders of abusive messages, which can lead to stress, loss of confidence and productivity, and an avoidance of face-to-face communications with colleagues. In some cases, victims have been so traumatised by a flamemail that they resign.
