    Not sure what you mean. Are you suspecting an employee of HostGator of stealing your e-mail account?

    Seems like you could just call HostGator and ask to speak to a manager. Tell them what happened and they'll investigate the employee.

    Try and contact your e-mail provider and explain what happened. You should be able to provide proof that you are the correct owner of the account.

    yes it seems unlikely an employee of hostgator would bother hacking your email account, it's too useless.

    Check with the email provider how to reset your password. Or if your email is not important, contact hostgator to change the email while explaining that you lost access to your email.

    I don't think the staff at Hostgator care to hack your email address. Maybe you're mistyping your password? Are you working with saved passwords or manually typing it in? Just try and reset it.

    i don't understand you. an employee of hostgator changed the password of your e-mail address ?
    if yes, contact them and tell about this problem, but first of all contact adsense support to change you the password and e-mail too.

    don`t know what to do next, just do that and see what happen.

    Gee uh, maybe ... maybe you could call hostgator again, since they are the people that have the information you need.

    Or you could knock back a six pack while enjoying the rest of the world series - assuming it isn't rained out.
