I never believed that some one can actually hack an email that easy. If someone hacks an email it means he actually hacked the server and he will gain access to many emails not to mine only. Anyway from time to time I hear someone says that his/her email was hacked, sometimes you even read it in the news where a celebrity complains about his email being hacked.
I think these people lost their passwords or used an easy to guess passwords. I do not think a real hacking is going on.
Am I right? does email hacking as in real hacking happens? or it is just a propaganda made by silly people who uses weak passwords or somehow expose their passwords and then they just blame the hackers? I think they are influenced by the movies where the hacker move elevators and turn traffic lights to green and that stuff.
