Teng Biao, who lectures on law at the University of Politics and Law in Beijing and is involved in human rights issues in China, blogged today about unexpected settings on his Gmail account:
Teng goes on to reproduce a post written in October, 2007, when his previous account was compromised and used to send out false rumors meant to discredit him:

Related: ChinaHush has translated the account of another Gmail user who discovered that sensitive mail forwarded from Gmail to a China-based email provider often did not reach its destination.
