I've been informed that the members of this list would be interested in a usability study being conducting on the activities of Email Administrators. If you are not an email administrator but know of someone who might be interested please feel free to forward this message.
I am looking for email administrators in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento to participate in a usability study. We are looking for individuals whose primary role is to administer and maintain their organization's electronic mail system; regardless of the type of email system administered or the tools used. Participants may be system administrators, database administrators, network administrator as long as 50% of their time is spent working on the electronic mail systems.
As a thank you for participating in the study, we are providing $20 Starbucks gift certificates to the participant, a $5 Starbucks gift certificate to their manager/VP(s), and a $5 Starbucks gift certificate to the individual who referred them. The purpose of the study is to identify the types of tasks that email administrators typically perform, and the tools that they use. It involves no travel as we would like to visit email administrators at their place of work and observe a typical day.
If you are an email administrator who would like to participate, please contact me at the address below and provide a name and phone number where you can be reached. If you know of an email administrator who might be interested, please forward this message to them.
Thanks for your assistance, Kristyn Greenwood
Principal Usability Engineer
