This paper presents a case study with Enron email dataset to explore the behaviors of email users within different organizational positions. We defined email behavior as the email activity level of people regarding a series of measured metrics e.g. sent and received emails, numbers of email addresses, etc. These metrics were calculated through EmailTime, a visual analysis tool of email correspondence over the course of time. Results showed specific patterns in the email datasets of different organizational positions.
