Re: Sneaking a peek on Wlan in airports

Get a free or anonymous one-use email address and email him to let him know you noticed his email check at the airport. 
Suggest he should change his password in case others also grabbed it, and maybe pass on a link or two that he can pass 
to his IT staff (or take to heart personally) on more secure wireless practices.

If this had been the Starbucks you frequent down the street, i.e. a place this guy might also frequent and you two 
might come into contact and he might get highly suspicious or even confrontational with you, I would then let this go. 
But considering this was at an airport, I think you can safely and anonymously let him know to change his password.

If you want to get more involved...maybe you really have a passion to make sure other companies are practicing secure 
computing...you can check his account in a few weeks. If the password is still unchanged, email his IT tech support or 
management. Of course, this can definitely sound threatening, so it might be best to let it go by this point...
