Interesting. I've had Mindspring, now Earthlink since 1996 and have never had my passwords on any of my 8 email accounts changed by anyone other than myself every 6 months or so. Other than losing access to your DSL and email for the main account (they share the same login/password credentials) what value would breaching your main email account password hold for anyone?
