Your Panix account (like any Internet account) exists on a public system in a worldwide network. Because of this, it's important to keep your account secure so that your email, account ID and even your "virtual identity" remain yours alone.
These days, a compromise of your email account or a click on a malicious web link can lead to a compromise of your home computer and computer network, so you have to be very careful about whom and what you trust.
Look here for all kinds of info about keeping your account secure, and even enhancing that security with encryption, one-time passwords, etc.
