administrator permissions mail server Feb 06 2007 12:51PM

Hi everyone,

I am sorry if this is not the exact forum to post this question but seemed
the most relevant.
I am working in a network with 40/50 PC's managed by 3 people with
administrator passwords.
The OS used is GNU/Linux.
There is also a webmail service provided by the same server, which is also
by the same people.
My question is the following:
Since the administrator has of course access to all user files, does this
mean that
one with administrator privileges can read everybody's emails?
