    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
    employee?
     What is your opinion or the standard in this cases? What is the
    companies approach?

    Thanks a lot.
