Most of the university email policies that I have seen, including the University of Mississippi's email policy, address what you can and can't do with your university email account (personal use, spam, attachments, harassment, expectations for privacy, etc.).  Are any of you aware of any public university email policies that say employees *** must *** use their university email accounts for all university business?   If yes, then can you share the language?   I am especially interested if this was a university-wide mandate or set and enforced for certain scenarios only.  Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.
