Email traffic represents any traffic that comes from an email. This email may be opened in a browser based email client like Google mail or a specific email application like Outlook. The media type is used to understand what kind of email this is. Owned email traffic is from a mailout sent out to customers. Earned email traffic is generated spontaneously from communication between customers, perhaps recommending a product to a friend.
