If anyone else is interested there is a new, free webmail service on offer from GMX.
You get 5gb of storage and can import mail from other accounts such as Yahoo, Hotmail, Etc.
I'm just having a browse of their Ts&Cs - because I'm sad like - that before signing up.

I've been using GMX for a couple of months now and have found it to be very good.
tbh I would just get a gmail account, at least there are that many people on it if they were doing anything sus then its more likely to be a big deal and get found out.
Also you get more space with gmail.
I do know one person on GMX though and he thought it was good.
Its possible you had a keylogger for mac (yeh they exist esp since apple dont patch holes anywhere near fast enough - see java) but it could easily be when you logged in anywhere that is public. Its so easy to capture cookie packets and then fake auth you have no idea. I would make sure the gmail setting for force https is turned on as that at least prevents that hole.
Really logging on anywhere its not a machine in your control could lead to the keylogger hole too. There were a few crossdomain exploits but they were closed v quickly.
As for the other issue with hacked Gmail accounts, wasn't there something in the news a while back about them being attacked? Maybe that was Hotmail....? Anyway, I think they have their bases covered in the Ts&Cs as far as data loss is concerned. There will be some get out clause that says the service is provided "as is" with no guarantee of non failure I'm sure.
And it does smell of malware too.....
Also on os x I have enabled stealth mode other then that dont access my email at work - If I am on edugeek then I am directly on the site and just refresh the threads I am interested in.
If you look in Settings at the bottom of the page you should see the option.
Can you explain how to get to that setting as Im not ffinding the force https option ( I already have SSL option on ) FYI I'm using O.S 3.0
Log into gmail then click Settings at the top right corner of the page. Scroll to the bottom and you should see this option. HTTPS uses SSL certs so not sure exactly what you mean by SSL turned on?
Under there somewhere is a slider to turn SSL on or off and I have got that on ( that was what I was reffering to with regards to SSL being on )
