Not really too sure how this relates to mobile software development. Maybe this should be moved to a different forum?

Good tips to keep your public account email secure:
  • Use trusted computers (home, office)
  • use a complex password (numbers, letters, capitalization, punctuation)
  • change your password regularly
  • keep a seperate dummy account for newsletters and various non-important email communications
  • Avoid using your email in public wifi hotspots, etc. Always over trusted networks.
  • Secure your own home,office wifi. With wep, wpa, etc. Use a mac filter list.
