Here, rules about removing phishing emails from the server would not be a

Hello all,

Does anyone have an explicitly stated practice or policy of removing phishing 
emails either from the server or from individual email accounts?
We address that that employees have a limited expectation of privacy on 
University email accounts.  But haven’t described a practice of removing 
malicious emails from individual accounts.
