BBC News - Atos boss Thierry Breton defends his internal email ban.
ATOS ending internal emails (not external ones). My experience is that internal emails are mostly useless, and often get send out to people who don't need them anyway. Much better to use tools such as messaging or Facebook. The problem then of course is companies having to be persuaded to allow such tools on their network. I imagine complaints from IT people about compromises to their network, and from management suspicious of 'frivolous' use.
