May I access the email in-box of an employee?


A department head wanted to access the e-mail in-box of an employee.


The employee had been absent for a long time and did not take any steps to make his professional messages available.


This was an urgent matter and nobody had the password to access the employee's work station.


The department head addressed the computer department who refused to give him access.


The department head had no access to the email because, according to the internal working procedures, the information processed by the employee was available in the shared folders.
