some one managed to issue a password reset command to my account and then somehow logged in and reset my password essentially owning my data.
And it happened not once but twice to him after he got his account restored from first attack. He himself confesses that his Hotmail password was strong enough to be cracked. Then how did this happen?
Poor fellow. My heartily sympathy with you, Omar.
But he is right in saying that it is always better to keep your email backup in form of offline data files as he did by keeping all mails in form of Outlook PST.
