E-mail is perhaps the most popularly used system for exchanging information over the Internet. E-mail allows users to read, compose, send, and store messages over a network to USAID and third party users. While e-mail is a rapid and convenient means to communicate with other staff members and third parties, you must use e-mail in ways that: (a) respect the rights and privacy of others, and (b) keep USAID information secure. This document outlines acceptable usage policy for USAID e-mail.
