Email Secure?

Read somewhere about someone complaining about his Hotmail email being hacked through BB setup!?! Just wondering as I intend to use my BB for various web based email accounts, would it be SECURE and do I need to take any special precautions when I set up the email accounts in my BB?

Basically, it is Hotmail, Yahoo & Gmail accounts.


Also, how do I get a BB email account. I am using the 9860 with the latest OS.
