This Policy explains City of Annapolis [“City”] policies, rules and regulations on electronic mail [e-mail]. It also defines policy and procedures particular to the use of City-owned e-mail systems and services.

The fundamental assumptions governing these policies are that: the City e-mail system and services are City-owned facilities; and users of the City e-mail system and services are authorized to use those facilities in advancement of the City’s public service mission.

The City encourages the use of e-mail and respects the privacy of users. It does not routinely inspect, monitor, or disclose e-mail sent or received by the City or its employees. However, City users must understand that they have a diminished expectation of privacy in using City e-mail systems and services.
