They do that all the time in big company’s here. You have to sign a release before they will hire you that grants them access to all e-mails on your company computer.

Not that but once you work for them you shouldn’t think you will have privacy in your work emails. Unless you use Yahoo, Google…that isn’t connected to your work then you should be able to counter sue for breach of privacy maybe then.

There is no privacy in email. It’s considered as safe as a postcard. Anything you write on a postcard may be read by anybody.

It’s very strange when you present someone with some old archived email. I tend to keep every email ever sent to me. It sometimes surprises clients and colleagues as well. Saved my ass on more than one occasion.
