Hello One and All,

I am in desperate need of assistance! I say desperate as this is a matter of me loosing my job.

I have been accused of accessing the internet at work. To say point blank I know I haven't. When I have it has been outside of work time when allowed to do so.

My manager who is only doing there job had advised me that I have been accessing the internet because of a data log she has received . This data log was huge and consisted of dated times and internet addresses. When looking at the data I noticed that all of it referred to the emails that I place in my junk folder in outlook!?!

Our IT department advised me that over time these emails would be automatically blocked? This has not happened yet obviously. What I don't understand is why or how these emails are making me look like I am using the internet. Sind of the data looked like I had been on these web pages all day?

when I open my outlook at work I have a split screen. So my emails are shown at the bottom half of my screen. That's how I prefer to work when using emails. Im being told all different kind of things that the emails will make it look like I am accessing the internet too it doesn't effect the internet? So what is happening. I know I haven't accessed the internet at work and I can clearly see this data is my junk emails. These junk emails are a full pictures/writing and information type web page almost. Can anyone explain if these junk emails are causing a log to look like I've accessed them to take me to there internet web page? I've never clicked links on these emails just looked at them and drag them to junk filter?!? Many Thanks Daniel
When the mail containing external content loads in the preview pane, it will download external content.

Go to Tools, Options, Security. Click Automatic Download settings. Don't download... should be checked, the two permit options should be unchecked.

You should also check your junk mail options in Tools, Options, Junk Email. You might want to try the High setting - but if it's set to No filtering, set it to Low and see if it gets most of the junk out of your mailbox so you don't have to review it.
