We heard this over and over again, but that is -not- an argument to make access easier. Via file manager or FTP you have to search and try and find the correct mail. Via the simple login, you can easily see the subject and choose which to read from there. It takes extra work via file manager and you don't have any overview of which is what.
So yes, autologin -does- create an important change.
AVG/GPDR is to protect more, not to make life more easier for sysadmins.
So if it already can be done, another more difficult way where you can not see subjects at least, which is more safe, it should not be made easier with a better overview for no reason except lazyness.
Next to that, sysadmins should also not have the FTP credentials of a customer!
That the customer can read his mail is evident.
Which isn't an argument either. If another panel does not comply with laws it does not mean DA shouldn't either.
I do not talk for sysadmins ---- shell users (on accounts shell enabled - for composer, drush, wp-cli purposes) with the user account and criminals that hack a wordpres and install cgi or web shell has grep access which is faster search than that webmail search
