My emails are safe because they require username and password.

Fact

Using username/passwords for webpages and email clients software ( like Outlook ) is not the same. Webpages that ask for authentication are almost always SSL encrypted. It means that data transfered between your computer and server can not be decoded by the hacker. It is not always true for email text you send. Malefactor from your network can catch your travelling' emails.
