privacy of personal e-mails accessed at work enforced in U.S. court

This is an interesting development in the U.S. on the rights of the employee to not have their emails read by their employer when the email account is private although accessed using a company PC.


  1. I would say that they could be intercepting and storing the traffic using some network analyzer. After all most online email is in clear text when sent over the network. No password needed for this.

  2. Interesting. One wonders how they were able to access the emails anyhow? It specifically mentions that she did not store her password on the laptop, so I assume that that rules out any browser stored passwords. Was she storing saved files of her email traffic perhaps?
