Email Client Market Share Stats: Mobile Takes the Lead

Email testing service Litmus asked the question: Has your audience gone mobile? And with their latest email client usage data, answered it with a resounding "Yes."

Furthermore, according to their email client market share report for June, the iPhone is now the most popular email client, with 21% market share.
