Email policy

By pwaters ·
Does anyone know where I can find a template to use in creating an email policy? I have been given the task and don't have a very good idea of where to start.

Try www.ema.org - Search for toolkit in the bookstore - Privacy tool Kit is a good start.

Another site is www.ggtech.com - Some legal clearinghouse for tech related issues.

There's a good book that can get you well on your way. I used it to help me author our E-Mail Policy. It's widely available and I know that Fatbrain.com and Amazon.com carry it. It's called E-Policy and here are the details:
E-Policy : How to Develop Computer, E-Mail and Internet Guidelines to Protect Your Company and Its Assets; Overly, Michael R .
Amacon Books; 09/1998; Softcover ; $15.95 (20% off list); 146 pages

There are also software packages that will monitor all mail and help enforce your policy once it's in place. Go to www.contenttechnologies.com. This site is affiliated with the book's author.
Best of luck !

My advice would be to look at your top three competitors and try to find their policies. These should be published and publicly viewable. Clone and give to your management/legal consul for approval.

From working in a University environment our policies would not quite fit your environment. Searching via your favorite search engine for "email policy" or such will give you a lot of examples.

http://www.cli.org/emailpolicy/top.html provides some guidelines for establishing a company email policy that you may find informative.
