Good question, but may not be the right question. Any type of network based conversation, be it e-mail, instant messaging or web-form submission is vulnerable to many types of security risks. Aside from the risk of someone guessing your e-mail password (most common by the way), is a hackers ability to glean the information using a sniffer program. Most e-mail applications will send your message via plain-text across the network. If this is the case, any good sniffer program can read all your e-mails. If protection is vital, consider protecting your e-mail through digital signatures and digital encryption, for more info check out pgp (stands for pretty good privacy) @: www.pgp.com

Good luck with your solution! :)
