E-mail security policies

According to a survey by Webroot, some of the more common e-mail security policies have to do with prohibiting access to personal e-mail accounts from the office or stowing away corporate e-mails to such accounts. The next common strategy is to enforce a global confidential signature, essentially a signature that is automatically appended to all outgoing mails stating the corporate confidential policy.
