I had someone I know hack into my email account and print some of my emails. Is there anything I can do legally, or somewhere to report it?
Thank you very much!

Can be unlawful
Unauthorized access to an email account can be unlawful.
However, the practical question is whether anyone cares.
Unless you suffer some damages, are a celebrity, or some other criminal activities take place, law enforcement may not care enough to do anything for you.
A current example is Palin (the VP candidate). Some allegedly hacked her private email account. Law enforcement has identified the person. Prosecutor has charged the person.
In case you have not, you take steps (such as changing password, changing account) to prevent further unauthorized access.
Re: Email hacking
What you have described violates both state + Federal law.
