Abstract. The e-mail service takes significant part at the corporate collaboration due to its natural benefits: unification, traceability and the ease of use. To ensure that such a fundamental service is functioning and being maintained right, proper methods for measuring its efficiency and reliability are in place. In this paper we propose a group decision making approach that allows to choose proper asset of key performance indicators (KPIs) for measuring the operational performance of the service. A set of KPI indicators is proposed for quality assessment of e-mail service. The optimization of the service is done within ITIL framework.
