Ask HN: Is okay keeping a private copy of your mailbox after leaving a company?
As per title, I always wondered: assume you are abut to leave the company you currently work for, is okay keeping a private copy of your mailbox after leaving a company?
Your mailbox contains, roughly, a history of most things that happened to you during the employment.
On one hand it could contain private information of the company, on the other hand it might contain data that you could need should anything happen and should you be called to testify and/or justify anything.
Assume, for the sake of the argument, that the contents of the mailbox are kept safe and in encrypted form.
