How Often Do You Check Your Personal Email at Work?

My workplace has Outlook, so it's always up, I never check it unless a new message alert pops up on it, since pretty much everyone communicates to me via email the majority of time.

I never use to for the past 2 years, but lately I have been checking my email a few times a day. It helps sitting next to IT.

I configured my personal AOL email to run through Outlook :-)

I work for a county government where employees get fired for going online for personal use. So, no. Never.

Just once or twice, if a friend needs to contact me they usually ping me on MSN or Skype. These days my personal email box might as well be renamed spam-trap. :P

I only check it once a day when I'm on break. But I leave my Outlook email for work stuff open all the time in case I get anything important.

3 million..I work at the University I graduated from, so my email stayed the same, so I get my work/personal emails from the same place

I'm signed in all day, but I keep it in an IE tab so I check it only when I see there's an email. And when I have time to check my emails, too - when I have work to do I don't even think about it.

Im signed in all day. But I have very little work to do, so my boss understands. And my beau finds it good for his stress levels to keep in touch.

Never. They've blocked all internet email services, because they're worried people will download harmful files.

Once or twice, only. :P Most people just use my work email these days since it's easier to get ahold of me.

At my current job, never. I don't have internet access, it's a restaurant. At my old job, I was signed in almost all the time.

A few times a day. Depends how busy I am and if the big boss is here. lol.

I check about 2 to 3 times daily on the job's computer but I have the internet on the sidekick so I check more often on that.

Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Maybe a third time after work. I try to restrict my e-mail-checking to try and actually get some work done. My job is very goal and numbers oriented so I always got to sacrifice some Internet usage.
