Instead of using passwords, use passphrases. Passwords longer than twenty characters become harder for hackers to guess, and they take too long for a hacker to brute force. Upwards of thirty characters would take years to crack - the passphrase "ThisPasswordIsVeryDifficultToCrack" would take years to crack, but it's obvious. Trying a passphrase such as "HorseDogLlamaChickenOneHundredAndSixtyFourBlue" is not as difficult to remember as "£hwne&n8HG(^$J" but is just as secure.
Passwords allow only authorised people to view the information. Without the password - the data remains secure. Passwords can be any length (usually a minimum of five characters) - and made up from numbers, letters and other characters. The longer the password - the more secure it is. For example... say you need a password of just numbers and letters... a five digit password would have a possible 60,466,176 combinations. However a ten-digit password would have 3656158,440,062,976 possibilities !

No, as this would be a security risk. Passwords are normally held in the registry but they are encrypted and unable to be viewed.
No, email is transmitted in plaintext. A secure solution would involve encrypting your email or using a more secure protocol (secure ftp, ssh, https, etc)
Same reason we have door locks and safety procedures: because not everyone is friendly, and they would love to hack accounts without passwords...
