JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Many of us spend part of our workday blasting friends with e-mail and whatnot, sometimes through the company server, and sometimes through that secret "other" account on Gmail, Yahoo or Hotmail.

But those e-mail aren't as private as you would think, especially since you're typing them up on a company computer.

"Companies are still struggling to understand how this trend is impacting the workplace," said Paul Fadil, a professor of organizational behavior and international management at the University of North Florida. 

"Whether it's looking at what is public versus private, what can my boss see, or how I can effectively use e-mail, this method of communication raises as many issues as it tries to solve."

Fadil also talked about the issues surrounding e-mail on "Good Morning Jacksonville," including e-mail etiquette, how long can an e-mail sit in your inbox before you answer it, and when it is not the right time to send an e-mail.
