One of my sons had his email a/c hacked and the hacker started sending out invoices in his (my son's name). The first that he knew about it was when he received an invoice allegedly from himself. As I own his domain, I was able to get in and reset things for him (and notified the ISP).

When my father died (Covid, early last year), I went into his account, send email to his regular correspondents to let them know (again, he was using a domain that I owned and I'd set up his email originally). I only had one officious reply from a well know high street company (like sogra backwards) who were sending him junk mail - they wanted a certified copy of his death certificate before thy would consider stopping sending to him.
