Hello yes I am aware that they have a right to have access to it. They have changed my signature slightly so instead of saying my name, it says my position instead. However what I'm worried about is that a lot of people I deal with would have no idea that it's not me- they would think I've just changed my signature again (we've done 2 or 3 signature changes company-wide in the last few months)
Would I be within my rights to send out an email to all my contacts, saying that I'm leaving and that if they get an email from my work address, it is not going to be from me, so I disclaim all responsibility for any mail from or to that address?
I would obviously do that from my home address not my work one...
So discuss it with my management so they understand why I am sending the message out, you mean?
