    Computer Security Question

    Let's say I send emails from a yahoo or hushmail account from my work computer. One of the tech guys here was saying that because it goes through the company's internet proxy server, they can read any of the emails. I told him hushmail is encrypted so how could they read it. He said it would be more difficult to read it but its possible for the system admin to read it. What do you guys think?

    He would not be able to read the hushmail email....... for him to do that he would have to have the security key.......... besides hush the only other group to have that key would be the goverment.
