If you are utilizing Google's webmaster console, you'll be pleased to know that Google has launched Message Center - a formal way for Google to communicate with you about issues pertaining to your website.
Notifications that appear in Message Center will initially refer to search quality issues (for example, if you have hidden text on your website) but over time the communication channel will be used to provide other types of information.
Integrating messaging into Google accounts instead of using the traditional channel of email is a good move as it will provide an added layer of security from phishing attempts that for a while plagued Google back in May.
Message center is provided in all supported Webmaster Tools languages, but the number of sites Google is actually contacting is small according to the Official Google Webmaster Central Blog.
