It is unlikely that whoever hacked your email account did it to get just 
your contacts.

They redirected your mail to a bogus folder for a reason, they didn't 
want you to see the replies they were getting to something.

Check amazon and other credit-card using accounts that might have been 
connected to that email account. Also check any accounts that used this 
account as their recovery account.
