Risks of Using Employer E-Mail for Personal Use

Perk, and peril, in employees’ attachment to e-mail: “For much of the working population, e-mail is not only available but indispensable, a tool not just for work but for maintaining personal bonds….many workers are accustomed to using a work computer and e-mail address to stay in touch with friends and family in the course of the day. Yet with the convenience comes risk. Although many people are aware that they may be sacrificing privacy by using workplace e-mail, they are sometimes indiscreet in what they write.”
