Email providers in Norway

By Anders Olsen Sandvik on

Repost from tech.finn.no by @andersos.

It all started with a simple tweet:

Er det noen som har noe norsk statistikk på bruk av e-post (gmail vs. outlook vs. online vs. yahoo osv)? F.eks @labs_finn_no eller @NRKbeta?

"Does anyone have any Norwegian statistics on the use of email (Gmail vs. Outlook vs. Online vs. Yahoo etc.)? Eg @labs_finn_no or @nrkbeta."

We have access to the data so if this will help someone why not post it. We have around 4 million email addresses in a database. These emails are not verified. The data was retrieved . To answer the question "Gmail vs. Outlook vs. Online vs. Yahoo etc." we would say:

Microsoft 33,57%
Google 15,32%
Telenor 12,53%
Yahoo 4,31%

The lists under shows the domain, number registered and percent of total. At the end is the table of the more popular email service providers (this list is cut off at 2500). Watch this space in the future if this is information that interests you.
