One thing that I have done is to set up separate "throw a way" email account that I just use for one trip. You can usually set up your normal email account to forward(or not forward) selected emails to your temporary email account.

This has the advantages of;

1) Limiting the impact if the account is compromised.

2) Limiting the volume of email

3) Limiting the email history that is visible that a hacked account would expose.
