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.
