Re: "I ain't about to email you from my work address"

If you happened to work in a UK Gov dept, its not the privacy aspect, it is the fact that all email communications are recorded and FOI'able, so posting to a web forum from a browser is one thing, but emailing is completely different.

Even a quick email to a family member to say you're stuck at work and running late allegedly isn't advised by the IT policy.

Also, if working in said dept, I've heard it is nigh on impossible to access any other email accounts other than your work one from your issued devices, and incredibly difficult and a contravention of the IT policy (disciplinary offence) to install any workarounds in order to do so.
