    I mean that when i am sending emails to my friends, using yahoo inbox. One copy of each email is is going to Network Administrator inbox.
    I want to send email to my friends but don't want that Network Administrator will get my private emials.
    I hope now its clear.

    Are you using the yahoo mail web interface or a POP3 connection to yahoo?
    If it's the web interface, I don't see how your "network administrator" is getting your mail ...
    And even if you're using Pop3, unless there is a firewall/content filter upstream from you that's set to flag yahoo mail and forward a copy, your network admin shouldn't be getting it.

    Yes perfectly clear now, however as nimby has said, and even if there was a content filter it would just block yahoo. Once you log in it is encrypted and no one should be able to intercept the content. The only thing that comes to mind is if there is some program on your work computer that is making a copy as you type it and sending it.

    Gotta love it when the corperate "monitoring" policy allows keyloggers to be installed on your system. :thumbdown:

    I know the feeling but thats about all i can think of that would allow someone to gather that info. And with everything that has taken place over the last few years, corporate america has gotten even more paranoid then the conspiracy theorist.
