In this article is proposed an approach based on the Social Network Analysis and its practical applicability in the study of the organization in terms of flow processes e-mails employees. The aim of this paper is to analyze the interaction between individual employees corporation used to designate staff-leaders from the point of view of spreading information or to influence those in the immediate vicinity. This analysis further work should contribute to the creation of the algorithm, the application of which will be used to improve the accuracy of the classification of e-mail messages to specific folders in the mailboxes of employees. The proposed method has been tested on a public dataset Enron Email.
