According to a new study, the average corporate employee sends 112 emails a day. And at least 17 of those are gossip.

The Georgia Tech study by Eric Gilbert examined 600,000 emails from an Enron database and found that 15 percent of the infamous company's emails were "gossip." Gilbert defines gossip as talk that involves a third party not in the conversation.
