Actually, this is part of their workflow. The agents are aware of this and
the email that they are using is only for client correspondence. They will
use their own personal accounts for private matters. Their personal
accounts, of course, are not being monitored. This is just similar to the
workflow of many organizations where the output is inspected first by a QA
person before releasing it to the public.
