What legal action can be taken against someone who logged in to someone else's Web-based email account like Excite or Hotmail by correctly guessing the password?

Answer

What are the damages?

Suggestions:

1. Change your password to something more difficult. If they guessed it, must be weak.

2. If you and the other person are members of the same company, there may be some policy that the other person violated, so you could pursue company discipline.
