Let me first say that I am NOT worried about my employer having access to my Internet connection and snooping on where I surf. I am speaking strickly about my email. So let's assume they do not have access to my Internet connection.
This past week, the new parent company switched my company's emails to be hosted on their server. They had me call up our email hosting company and have them change the MX Record for mail.X.com to point to their servers.
To me, this would mean they would now have the ability to read all of our incoming emails. First, am I correct on that?
Second: currently, I have my outgoing mail server in Thunderbird on my work computer set to use mail.X.com. So would that mean that they could read all OUTGOING emails as well?
If the answer to that is yes, then another question. I have my personal email set up in Thunderbird on my work computer. It, as well, sends outbound emails through the mail.X.com server. So would that mean they would be able to read outbound email from my personal account (when it is sent on my work computer)?
If the answer to that is yes, would you agree, then, that if I set my outbound mail server on my work computer to Comcast's server rather than mail.X.com, then my company would NOT be able to read any of my outbound email, whether it's the work or personal account? The only thing they would be able to read is any email I reciece to my work account.
Is all this correct? Some of it? None of it?
Thanks for any input,
