Can exchange admin read personal emails?

I know that if your in office 365 from an organization/enterprise/school and install office on your personal computer for work use they can read your emails hosted on the exchange server. Or at least The emails on the email account apart of the organization. But if I use outlook and add my personal email in outlook does that go through the exchange server and they can read those as well or only the provided organization email account?

Hi @GarySather-9240,
Please kindly understand under Outlook tag, we mainly focus on general issues about Outlook desktop client, considering your issue may be more related to exchange admin, I removed Outlook tag, thanks for your understanding and hope your issue would be resolved soon.

They cannot access your personal email, unless they also have access to the machine you work on.

From the perspective of Exchange sever side, agree with michev that your Exchange admin won't have access to your personal email. As regards to your organization Exchange email account, they are able to access all the emails by means of Full Access permission or other ways like in-place eDiscovery.

I believe it is answered. It sounds like as long as they don’t have physical access to my machine they can’t access my personal information. But they do have access to my one drive files as well as enterprise email.
