Then your boss is a moron. Too many people focus on inconsequential details like this and ignore security.

Is this guy paying by the email?

My last job we had lots of idiots. They're called Sales, Marketing and management. The sort who can't understand why downloading and playing porn using company equipment & on company time isn't ok. Or that complaining to IT about your bootleg software (which you installed on your company laptop) might get you fired. Or getting fired for printing 5000 copies of a flier for your church's Easter service on a company printer using company paper ISN'T religious persecution.

When we blocked wave and flash attachments on email, our storage requirements dropped 80%.

Who gives a fuk what he wants or does (within reason of course), he pays me to do the job and I do it. You feel free to go tell your boss to screw off though.

Funniest IT story I have is the guy who sent me an email frantically telling me that the email I just rejected from him was just a joke and that he was very sorry.

I told him that I don't reject the emails but that the server automatically sends those messages if you tried to send an email wasn't allowed (swear words, certain attachments etc). He replied saying "Thanks! I'm glad to hear it!!!".

What I didn't tell him is that the server keeps a copy of the rejected emails. So looking at the server I saw his email flagged for language. Inside was an email telling a fellow work colleague how much he "couldn't wait to f**k her tonight". The work colleague was not his wife.

It was fun watching him tip-toe around me for the next year. What an idiot.

This is why you digitally sign and encrypt emails. sigh. So many morons on and running networks.

The biggest idiots I deal with are sales. nationally but mostly internationally. Now I want to be sure not to take away any retard credit for our national guys, but our international guys are absolutely brain dead. IT can be nazi's sometimes, but if you ahve there job you would be too, 80% of people in the office are retards when it comes to online activity!

If you're on a corporate network, it's not as easy as just deciding to encrypt your email messages. My users can't install software on their machines, but if they could, I'd suspend an account immediately if someone tried to do that using the company mail server. They might as well hold up a sign that says "I'm doing stuff that I know I'm not supposed to be doing, so I'm going to try and hide it because I think that I should be able to do anything that I want on this computer that you bought for me... and I'm an idiot".

If you're going to screw around at the office via email, do it with a gmail account.

We have a policy here that all users must to agree to if they want to use a computer. Part of that policy is acknowledgement that all emails, voice messages and files are the property of the company and using the systems to create those documents is a service that is provided to them and supported by IT. Users are given notification that they should expect no privacy. It's not because we're trying to be pricks and control employees... it' s just to cover the company's butt. I don't read people's emails unless I'm instructed to. I don't monitor phone calls unless I'm instructed to. But the systems we have in place give me the ability to go and read or listen to anything that everyone here has done within the last 12 months. It's saved the company a few lawsuits that otherwise would have been 'his word against mine'.

We had a Sales guy a couple of years ago that left to work for a competitor. A couple of months later we started getting calls from customers saying that our now former sales guy was calling on them, using all of the same presentation materials that he used when he worked for us - he just changed the logo. Of course that ticked our president off and my company sued the pants off of the guy. The crazy thing is, he was dumb enough to actually talk about doing this with his future employee while he was still working here... using OUR E-MAIL SYSTEM. The ignorance of some people just amazes me.

we'll i'm glad i don't work for a company that goes through my email, but why would you use your company email/phone to do something you know will get you in trouble?

gmail for sensitive materials, work email for.. well... work.

our IT kid is 22 years old and watches movies and surfs porn all day, so I'm sure he's real concerned about what we are doing, but either way, I try to keep it clean.
