No, there's no obligation to do that - it's just that if you don't you can be imprisoned for the behaviour of your employee. I doubt if any company routinely monitor like that, but if it was suspected that someone was using company time and bandwidth for an illegal purpose, it would certainly be sensible to monitor that person's activities for a time. It's not something I ever needed to do, but I can see that it could happen.

I don't think there is anything new or special about email here. A company can't knowingly allow any of their equipment to be used for illegal purposes. What would you do if you thought an employee was making bomb threats from a company phone?
