    As I said earlier, I am collecting replies on this issue and posting them separately. Here are a few more.

    Regarding emails from hacked accounts, Tom Sult writes:
    "Here is another response... I get at least one of these per day from someone. "

    And Alan S writes:
    "certainly annoying. Respecting his strong password, one wonders what the level of data security ACTUALLY existing at sites such as Yahoo, compared with the security claimed, might be. There are other possibilities too, but levels of data security that actually exist, as opposed to those claimed could well be a salient point."

    And Fred Hebard writes:
    If you log onto email with a client such as Outlook, there usually is an option to make the connection secure. Otherwise the password goes in the clear and could be sniffed. If you use an web browser to log into gmail or similar's web-mail server, make sure to log into an https site, not an http site. Otherwise, again, the password would be in the clear and liable to sniffing. echew!"

    Thanks, all. And that should be enough commentary on that, I would think.
