    Hi,

    actually i'm using Yahoo Mail (@ymail.com), but today I talked with a friend and he suggest me to evaluate a change because Yahoo Mail is very simple to hack, and is not secure.

    He report that he have several security issue in the last year, and with very good and strong password, him account had been hacked.

    How is possible that with a good password, a good secret question with a very very secret secure reply, an account can be hacked?

    Your experience?

    After this story, i'm watching to switch to other provider, but i think that the risk of an hack attack can be the same.

    Your yahoo experience?

    I'm sure it is prone to hack, but I also imagine most are. It's just a simple email account, nothing I would give too much thought on.
