My company's current policy is the same.  I am writing one that would allow occasional use.  Otherwise, they do not 
enforce it until they want to get rid of someone - and IMHO that is selective discipline.

The email policies that I have written don't have any leeway for personal
communications. Any and all messages contained within the system are the
property of the company and may be read by an administrator in the normal
course of their duties. Absolutely no email of a personal nature should ever
be transmitted using the corporate email system.

Now, we all know that personal email is going to be transmitted, and by some
employees that's all that will EVER get transmitted. But, the statement is
out there, the employee had to sign it and if they ignore it and put their
personal information through our system, and they will, then the decision is
theirs and not from the company.

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.
