Thanks for responding. Actually, I am certain it's not legit... and also, the email did not mention iTunes, only my Apple ID. I just thought that if Apple wanted to be notified, I would forward it to them. Otherwise, I will just delete it.
My other question was about the relative security of my iPod if connecting to the Internet via unsecure wifi, like the free kinds in hotels or cafes. I have read that Apple o/s is more difficult to hack. Is this true?

The problem with free wifi hotspots is that the wifi transmissions can be interecepted. Some apps transmit the the login cridentials without encryption and thus those can be interecepted. However, most app now use encryption all the time, including when logging on.
See the following for what drove a lot of apps to use encryption for logins
Yes it is difficulty to hack into an iOS device via wifi

Thanks! I read the article re: Firesheep. I understand the concept, but execution is a bit foggy. I use Google Chrome on my (non-IOS) tablet, IE & Chrome on my PC, and Safari on my iPod. Would like to understand how to force an HTTPS connection. Still, I'm not sure that is going to solve my issue completely. My email got hacked on an unsecured wifi connection and I didn't even log in (to my email account). I just went on the Internet and browsed. Can't figure out how that happened...

Forward the email to email@example.com.
iOS is incredibly secure but your Internet activities are a whole different matter.
