Email Spying at Work

    Long ago I worked at a place where I suspected someone reading my emails. I planted a "test" email and sure enough the false information surfaced.

    Any similar circumstances?  Any technical advise if you suspect privacy evasion?  For me, it was my IT Director who was at the time a "peer" to me.  It taught me to always be careful with the written word - especially the fast flying emails at work.

      The company I work for is required to review all email due to industry regulations so I always have to be sure emails are work related and not something private. 

      The best thing I could recommend is setup a gmail account and avoid sending anything you wouldn't want read with your company account.  Gmail uses SSL so the traffic is at least encrypted.  Its incredibly easy for anyone with admin rights on a network to intercept emails or view them directly on the server.

      Good luck
