Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you have been sending emails to your company through your Gmail, then yes –  they might be able to trace those emails back to your IP. If you have been sending emails out of your company using Gmail, then yes again. We tracked down a very naughty email sent within our company, and traced the IP address back to the users’ home IP address based on network / email records

    Depends on what type of connection/ network environment is there. If it is a proxy then of course they can get info about your mail and other internet activities.

    Yes. Your company might be able to trace the IP address or something.
