GMail Forwarding and Delegation Settings Can Spy on You

Postby TeMerc » Wed Jul 27, 2011 11:26 am

If you use GMail there are a couple of settings you should be concerned about. Mail Forwarding and Delegation can get you into trouble if you aren't careful.

Forwarding allows you to have any e-mail sent to a GMail address resent to another. Delegation allows you to grant to another user the ability to read your GMail and send mail using it, but not chat or change most settings.
