Don't be criticizing your boss

At least on the employer's email system. The result could be a lack of a job.
Recently released emails show a pattern of insubordination, bitterness and petty backstabbing by three former employees of the Lee County Recorder's office.

County emails show insubordination
The result here was a resignation and two firings.

Courts have ruled that emails are the property of the employer and are not subject to much privacy within that organization. If the boss wants to view them, then you hand them over (within reason, of course).

I get requests like this all the time and recently we stopped a request from HR when we thought a liability issue would come up.

Always cover your back-side.
