    Someone else also mentioned it could be a phishing attempt. There are a couple of warnings on some MMORPG forums regarding false e-mails claiming to have reset passwords. The link contained then proceeds to go to a login page where you enter your username and password.
    Maybe i mis-read some of the posts, but the only thing you have been receiving is password re-set e-mails, right?

    Edit - NVM, i didn't read correctly, he actually got hold of your E-Mail passwords. They weren't something easy to guess were they?
