Emails when you die

When contemplating a will think about how people can be contacted about your death.
If you live a life that uses a lot of email then you may have to leave your passwords where your executor can find it.
They may need to access your inbox (or contacts list) to let your friends know that you've died. If the email account is a free one then this may have to happen urgently before the account is deleted.

Update:
Keeping important records where they can be found in case of your mental decline or after you are gone.
That once meant storing papers in a safe or a file cabinet at home, in a safe-deposit box or with a trusted adviser. Even if the record keeping was spotty, there was a paper trail, starting with bills and statements that showed up in the mail.
But that trail has become harder to follow as more people manage their finances online.
