So called high security at email hosting company

This morning I dialed up company that will be providing email hosting to one of my clients.

The reason I called was that on the form for sign up there was an option for transferring my domain to them. Since this is not clear whether my domain ownership and management will be transferring to them or just email is transferring to them (MX records).

So I called. First lady who answered was clueless. She transfered me to IT. Fine.
IT guy was rude and would not answer any questions since I was not the actual owner of said domain.
Grrr.... OK. Fine Security is important.

So I complete the form anyway. One of the sections asks for my domain and the user name and password of the registrar. Hmm strange. OK keep going.

A few hours later I get an email with all the information that I submitted including the password to my domain.
