In today’s world, most people communicate via email. Hackers may gain access to sensitive, confidential, and personal information stored in the mail storage system.
In addition, attackers may be allowed to read and send email – as well as receive email sent by the legitimate owner. You can also set up automated email processing rules using some email platforms. They are all potentially harmful to legitimate users.
Email Hacking can be possible to many ways like:-
