Government workers in Australia will no longer have access to use free web-based email services like Gmail and Hotmail. The government made the decision to follow a report from Australia's Federal Auditor-General recommending that "agencies should not allow personnel to send and receive emails on agency ICT systems using public web-based email services." For situations in which government employees require access to these services, the auditor recommended the use of single, stand-alone desktops. The ban will take effect on July 1, 2011.
