This means that your company doesn't want you to read your emails from your home accounts. The reason that they do this is because reading emails from an outside source can cause viruses and spyware to come into their network, causing alot of problems. Work emails should remain just for work and work only. Do you realize that the company has to keep a copy of all your emails on their server. Yes, they have a copy somewhere. Sending emails using their email accounts and their server can be a cause for dismissal. Remember, it's their network and accounts and they can control it anyway they see fit.

Keep the home email accounts for home. I'm sure that you can wait until you get home to read those funny jokes and be able to unwind from the boring day at the office.

In closing, I'm going to give you something to think about,

Would you want your employees using your computer and email accounts to send items that could cause a virus and/or spyware to become infested in your network?

Would you want your employees to be goofing off reading and sending emails when the are suppose to be working?

Think really hard about this.

Well thank you for the thoughts but that is not exactly the idea.
Are not all our emails jakes in our private accounts.
And i think that most of us are big boys/girls to judge wheather they should read their emails or not.
Do not you think so???
I know all about backups etc.
As an employer i wouldnt mind if my employes were looking only there emails.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Most if not all the helpers here agree to honor workplace bans. Can you imagine the pain an employer would give me if I supplied workarounds to their bans?

-> Here's the fix. Ask your IT staff to allow access for you.

There is the proper way to do this.

Just so you know the policy.

The Forum policies state this:
"asking for information regarding software piracy or unauthorized emulators of software or hardware, sharing or distributing viruses, licenses, registration information, software keys, "cracks," or other information designed to do harm to or allow unlawful access to any computer hardware, software, networks, or any other systems. Please refrain from posting this kind of message."

If you read this, your workplace banned the access and the rules here also guide us to not help anyone break such bans.

Hope your IT lets you get your access back.
