The footnote you quoted indicates that message was, quite likely, relayed from a different account/server. I'd contact Gmail and let them look into it. Also check to see which ports/protocols are listed for smtp, when you're using interface other, than their webmail (i.e. Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook, etc, etc) - it might be open to intercept, particularly if you regularly use a public WiFi network, say at a coffee shop.
