Once again, the PTB have decided that Gmail and Yahoo Mail are evil entities and must be blocked because the spam filters for both of those programs are not as good as the one housed internally. Of course, those are the only two email programs that are blocked, not the thousands of others that have no spam filters whatsoever. Sometimes I have serious doubts about the intelligence required to work in our IT department or to become CEO of the whole institution.

UPDATE: Oh, I forgot to mention. When employees with children complained that they needed a way to keep in touch with their kids, the IT response was "Buy a cellphone so you can text back and forth."

those guys are likely following a book of "IT security for dummies" a number of books say "oh god you have to stop them.." I hate that with email.

I am not IT and it scares me when I know and understand more than them. Heck, it scares me when my co-workers will come to me first to fix their computers before they call the IT Department.

Oh yeah, everyone is allowed to text on their cellphones no problem. The problem I see is this: cellphones cost, internet doesn't.

And, newest development, the only people who are allowed to use Gmail or Yahoo are people who have immediate family members serving in the military in Iraq. Like they can't use cellphones or something.
