    I'm guessing it is because the work computer can be monitored. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Your are thinking correctly. In my travels I find the keeping personal data home and work data separate. Most modern servers record everything you do on their network & computers and use that against you.

    Now with the iCloud page is the best way to see your personal email at work.

    I wouldn't do it but that's me :)

    They may have policies that frown upon such stuff.

    There are many reasons why this could be bad.
    • It's against the policy of the place you work.
    • You have somehting in iCloud that doesn't belong on work computers.
    • Someone gets to your work computer (like IT) and mucks up what you have in iCloud (even if it's by accident)
