    email account hacked if logged in to blackberry 9800

    My email accounts are getting hacked continously from past 5 days. I have accessed my email accounts from 2 pc's, one from my home pc and one from my office pc, and this are hotmail and yahoo email account. I have also configured my email account on my blackberry 9800 torch. Surprisingly, when first time my email account was hacked I received information about my account from alternate email id, and I safely reset my hotmail password but am still able to receive email on my blackberry. So, if I had reset my email address then in my blackberry 9800, shouldnt it ask for password to login to the email, since i reset it. The same incident has happened for past 3 times and I dont have clue whether its the blackberry (RIM) service problem or the Vodafone carrier that I am using, since vodafone might be getting all the information related to my email account and its password, when I login on blackberry?

    I'd try to delete the email from your phone and then add it back again. This should take care of any password incompatibility issues for sure. Also, make sure to pick a password that does not relate to your username.

    Hi Thank you for your reply.

    Someone tried to login to my account from unknown locations.
    My PC is secured and safe with antivirus and firewall (both hardware and software).
    I reformatted the PC yesterday, but this again happened when I reconfigured the email on my BlackBerry mobile.

    Check screenshot for unkown activity in my email account:

    Cannot add image sending you PM (please check and post here), if someone can help or blackberry network is having issues.

    Edit: Here is image...
