GMail Sends Me a Copy of my Sent Messages


Question

roadgeek9

On my GMail account, whenever I send an email, for some reason, I get a copy of the email that I sent, and it always ends up in my Inbox. Is there any fix to this?

are you sending email from the gmail interface? or from some email client?

the only thing i can think of is that your client is incorrectly configured to put a copy of the sent message in 'inbox'

I am using Thunderbird, but even in the GMail interface, it does the same thing.

kind of a sidetrack.. but I know with Blackberry phones and GMail, you have to create a filter to block emails coming from your own email address.

This is happening to me too, when I send mail from Gmail's web interface, I receive that email in my outlook Gmail inbox.

I haven't really looked into it, but if anybody knows what's going on...

Thanks ;)

This has only happened to me when using Gmail's POP service in an e-mail program. Ever since I switched to IMAP, it has gone away.

Yep, you got the answer right there, switch to IMAP and the problem should be gone.

Wow, that's close to the lamest thing I've ever heard. I don't think I'm going to be popular when I say that Gmail is all hype. Little things like this shouldn't happen. I don't have this problem with my blackberry and yahoo email or any other email service. I thought I had done something wrong and that's why I looked up this question. I've been messing with each setting to try to figure it out and it just turns out that it's a defect in their system. I'm thinking that this new Android phone is on it's way back. It doesn't do emails nearly as well as a blackberry and I don't want google everything especially after knowing this. I have outlook on my computer. I'd rather pay yahoo's yearly fee than get free gmail that can't do pop3 right.

Either you have enabled an option to send a copy of every incoming mail to yourself (maybe the forward option) or your computer has been hijacked and botneted by a spammer which sends out spam mails including your own mail.

Simon-

Check in the Gmail preferences, maybe you have a filter to do this automatically. Also try using your ISP's SMTP server instead of Gmail's. I have never had this problem when using a POP setup with Gmail.

Nearly as lame as replying to a 2-year old post. Welcome to Neowin, please don't resurrect dead threads. ;)
