      Hu Guys
      there is a simple alternative to getting you email hacked on either
      yahoo or google mail, and thats to use an independent mail host,
      The are many out there at less than $10 a year and they are secure,
      IMAP or POP. the one I use uses Linux hosting, also good prices on
      domains.
      I'm not plugging them , but it does save getting your mail hacked
