    I got my touch stolen last night. OK, stupid of me.

    But I had 4 email accounts on it. If the thief was smart enough to use the wi-fi, he could snoop through those emails.

    Question is, is there anyway for me to unauthorized the access to the email? Other than changing the passcode for each account?

    Thanks.

    Cant you just change the passwords to your email? I dont think it will automatically change the password on the iPod.

    Yeah, that what I was thinking. I'll do that. Takes a little bit of my time but probably worth it.

    Wow, that is indeed worrying... The worst thing that can happen to the owner of a stolen iPod is having the thief looking through all his/her emails...

    Looks like I'm in agreement with the others here and suggest you change all the passwords of your email accounts to prevent any unauthorized viewing of your stuff...

    That's its. First time I ever brought it to the YMCA & left it unattended while playing basketball. It was in my jacket the entire time, so no one knew I had it. Then it was gone. Someone else there also lost his Blackberry. So I know it was random. Some idiot going through people's stuff. I hate thieves.

    I got no one to blame but my stupidity. I'm only 5'8 & the ballers in there are all bigger than me. So I don't know about kickin arse. The touch did have my name on it, so whoever brings it back must be a big idiot.
