from mydomain.de to mydomain.de/index.htm?

Yes, that's what they say...

|The part that I especially don't understand is that there is supposed to be some kind of redirection from mydomain.de to mydomain.de/index.htm which is not acccording to their guidelines. I don't have any redirections on that site. |
Don't take the slightest bit of notice of that email. It is highly unlikely that google sent you that email. It sounds 99.99% fake and from a spammer of some sort, most probably from a clown.

cornflower, research older threads on this forum and you'll see you are mistaken. Google does send such emails.

Google stopped sending penalty notifications last month because of hoax emails.
See this webmaster central announcement [googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com].
And this WebmasterWorld thread.
And this thread [seroundtable.com] at SE Roundtable.

Thanks a lot, and sorry for the false alert. I just found out about it myself. The email is a pretty good fake, it almost ruined my evening...

They can just redirect people who log in, in to the mail they want to show them or provide a link to the mail.

I have received on previously and the one I received was genuine and helpful

Maybe Google will figure out they can use pgp to sign their emails.
