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?

i know in the log files your password for yahoo is sent in plain text
so theres nothing stopping them from logging in as you to your email account.

He will most definately have your logs, so i would not send anything inappropraite from work.
I got canned last October and they showed me the logs and guess what they read?
It logs the times you were on etc... they laid it all out for me to see, i am a Networking student so it was'nt like i did'nt know they could do it.
