  If you are in a corporate environment (email is for your company only)
then YES and NO. You need to make a decision: emails are company property or
not. If they are company property, issue a corporate policy stating that
company email, like company money, belongs to the company and the company
has the right to audit and track all company property. If you decide that
emails could be or are private then do not even "test" the product, as it
would violate your decision.
  This could be a tool to check if an employee is "talking to the enemy".
Perhaps to show that you should use some additional spyware ...

  If you are an ISP or providing a service to a Third party then YES!  This
would be the
biggest NO-No ever!! DON'T use the console without modifying first! Not even
for a short time.
