Thoughts about employees accessing internet mail from work
Posted on 2006-05-11
We are about to implement an internet proxy at our office. The CEO has decided that with it, he wants all internet email sites blocked to the employees. I have worked in both types of environments... ones in which the employees can access their own personal email - and ones that they can't. I am just curious as to what other Email Administrators have seen...
When you block the employees from accessing their personal email, did you see a dramatic increase in the use of company resources for personal email? An increase in spam? Employee morale drop?
This has been a loose environment for 20 years. Slowly, but sure things are tightening.
Just looking for some real life experiences.
I will share the awarded points - based upon the responses.
