Ahhh that's a good point, didn't think of that since it has been a couple of
years since I had Internet access at work and I don't think my online
employers had any filters in place at that time.
Frankly, since I'm on their time, I don't completely disagree with corporate
filters, particularly if the primary purpose is to limit spam and the time
it wastes and any technical risks. I would have loved it when I worked for
one particular former employer, since I handled the mail to two high-profile
public e-mail addresses and got spam up the wazoo.
