Ipod with Bluetooth Spying?

My 'friend' gave me her old iPod after she had it "wiped clean" by the Apple Rep ..... everything, that is except the Bluetooth device of her home iMac.

Since Bluetooth was turned on & her device was the only one listed, was she able to see all of my emails before I discovered it and removed it? Any way to check or anything I can do now?

Please help.

It's not that simple. It is highly unlikely any if your personal information is on her iMac. Don't worry.

Unless you live to a room next to her, Bluetooth has extremely short range, maximum of around 30 feet and at that range latency would almost certainly be visible. Also Bluetooth protocol on Apple devices (except for Macs and possibly jailbroken iOS devices) are limited to only certain tasks that Apple has API's for. In other words it would be impossible for her to spy on you with Bluetooth signals. Just delete the paired signal if it annoys you.
