Default Random question about emails using a work network

Please Login to Remove!


Sorry if this isn't the right forum but I had a specific question. I get my email on a Pearl but sometimes, I want to download the mail to my laptop. If I plug in my personal laptop to my company's ethernet to get on the internet (not through the work email network), will they be able to read the emails that are downloaded to my personal computer?

I don't know if they could, but they would have the right to do it, since it is coming over their network. If the computer is a company issued device, then they would have even more of a right to do so, in my opinion.

If you are that concerned about it, I would continue to use your BB for personal email.
