This may come as no surprise to some, but a new study has found that more and more people are reading their e-mail on their smartphones or other mobile devices than ever before.

The study was conducted by a marketing research company called ComScore.

Comscore found that back in November that the number of people sending e-mail on a smartphone, or mobile device was up 36 percent from the year before, according to CNET.

The study also found that over the same period, the number of visitors to Web-based e-mail sites fell by 6 percent, reports CNET.

ComScore counted people who use a dedicated e-mail client on a mobile device, as well as those who just sync mail from Gmail or another online account to their phones, according to CNET.

E-mail is still one of the most popular activities on the Web, with more than 70 percent of online users accessing their messages via the Web each month, CNET reports.
