RE: e-mail policies

Your company simply cannot respect the privacy of its employees with respect
to E-Mails sent through your own E-Mail servers.  Employees should be
required to read and sign off on acceptance of an E-Mail policy, in which it
should be made crystal clear that their communications using corporate
resources are NOT private.  Corporate E-Mail accounts are not for personal

I think you will find that even most Internet Service Providers include such
language in their policies; they don't guarantee that no one at the ISP will
ever see your E-Mail.

Dear gurus

We are defining policies for the use of corporate e-mail, I have doubts 
about privacy of messages sent by employees. Since the e-mail system is 
intended for business use, we need to prevent sensitive information 
disclosure. If we respect the privacy , how can discover infidelity 
 What is your opinion or the standard in this cases? What is the 
companies approach?

Thanks a lot.
