    Kaspersky can only find a Virus ON YOUR PC ..

    If some-one 'hacks' your email FROM THEIR PC, plainly Kaspersky is never going to discover anything :-)

    Depends how they gained access. If you had installed a keylogger virus and they used that to view what you were typing and gained your password that way then it should have picked it up. If they hacked it through a brute force type of attack then there would of been no way your AV could of picked it up.
