Default Emailing someone your password

I saw in my dh's email, that he sent someone his email address and password. Why would he do this? Please give me all possible reasons. Thanks.

Default Re: Emailing someone your password

He is allowing someone else access to his email. Whomever has that can read, delete and generate emails in his name.

If it is a business account, then it may be an assistant who would have to do so on his behalf when he is not at the office (on vacation, say).
