    Help!!! Email Sent Copies Wont Go Away!!!

    i still consider myself a newbie to this whole iphone world. however, i love it none the less. I successfully unlocked my phone, and love the sms/email interface. however, one gripe i have is i send out TONS of emails in a day, and when my email goes to auto check for any new mail (gmail account), it always shows me a new message, however this new message is a copy of a message i sent. how do i get rid of this?
    the only messages i want to see are people who email me, not emails i send out!

    please help! thanks!

    Should be off. Are you sure you don't have gMail set up to send a BCC to you?

    Yeah, go to your actual Gmail account and check your settings.

    okay i went on my iphone and there was an option to turn bcc off. i did so, then i went to my gmail account, went to settings (forwarding/pop) and there was NO option to turn bcc off/on. help, these duplicate emails are driving me insane

    Create a new gmail account and see if it does it on that as well.

    I just can't see why it would do that unless the "send bcc to myself" function didn't turn itself off on the iphone for some reason, even though it shows turned off...

    my gmail as well as my wifes has done the same thing you've discribed ever since day 1. i wish i knew how to fix it but i can't figure it out either. i've checked all the things you've been through and it's still happening.

    I am posting a picture of my gmail imap and pop settings, I dont get the problems you are having so just copy them into your gmail settings and that should cure it.
