A: Without knowing the details of your email server, a definitive answer isn’t available. But here are some issues to think about:
- You do not “own” your work mail. Your employer does. If you permanently delete work mail, this very likely has legal implications that you would not want to deal with.
- If your work has properly configured email servers, there is a copy of every sent and received email hiding where only the system administrator has access. What this means is that if you did delete all work email, chances are you could end up in jail, owing thousands of $ to your employer, and with a couple clicks of a mouse they would have all of the email back in place anyway.
