Email Hacking

Email hacking seems to be a misnomer as most of the sites that provide you email services are rather secured from hacking. They provide you secure connection when you log in.

Email hacking is all about how you use your mail account. It is not the web server that can be hacked but the email client on your system. This provides the hacker the mail you have saved on the local folders including the address book and personal details of your contacts in the address list.

Another means is to get the passwords of your email account. This can be done in a variety of ways. One method is to get the password from the file that is stored on the PC. This file contains the password only if you chose the option of "remembering your email ID and password" when you log in.

The second method to email password hacking is to try the various possible combinations of passwords you are likely to use. This is a guess work and is more or less done on personal information about you like dates of birth, anniversaries, Names of your wife's, kids or pets since these are commonly used as passwords. The third method is a key logger software.
