Don't use your work email for nonwork purposes

BTW, you may consider not sending nonwork emails from your work email.

I know a guy from tennis in Atlanta. He was fired from his Lockheed Martin engineering job for merely forwarding an e-mail that he received from another Lockheed guy, to a few friends. HR made an example out of him. The email had a racial joke. I forget what it was, but it wasn't even racist, not even at the level of a Mencia/Chappelle joke. Not close to Imus, & definitely not even anywhere close the actually racist level of Weiner "Savage" or mAnn Coulter. Again he just forwarded the joke email, it wasn't even his email.

That example shook me from ever wanting the use work email for nonwork purposes.
