What’s in my email?

Have you ever sent a password, credit card #, social security#,  or a bank account # to your spouse or friend.  Do you know that every gmail email (including attachments) sent or received[1] lives on forever in your email storage?  Early adopters have had Gmail accounts for over six years.  On average each person receives 13,000 non-spam emails a year. Having a gmail account for only 4 years, I personally have 75,000 emails in my Gmail inbox.

Your most sensitive information is a single password or worse yet a public-computer-that you-forgot-to-log-out-from away from access to anyone!

Password cracking software is rampant on the Internet. What if someone hacked into your email. What would they find ?
