    Gmail sends my BB copy of every "sent" email...

    Advertisement



    It's annoying. When I send gmail email from the device AND on the PC, I get a copy of the email I sent to my BB.

    How do I stop this? The "receipt" in Options is already turned off.

    You gotta login to your BIS account and create a filter for Sent From "your Gmail Account" and set the forward to handheld to No. This happens to pretty much everyone on Gmail as its a known issue with it. Once you do that though, you are good to go!

    It's not really and "issue" per say, it's just that it's the file system. Well at least the lack of a file system in Gmail. Since Gmail is just one big folder and it just uses tags that is why it sends you a copy. Because the IN box is the same as the SENT box.

    Just do as lovin said and you should be fine.

    Well ok I guess the word "issue" was a tad harsh then

    Do 1 thing, go to settings of your mailbox on computer, and switch off the option of save sent mails, your problem is fixed.

    In your BIS account you want to create a filter.
    Folow these steps:

    Fill everything out.
    • Choose a filter name - “No Sent Messages” is used in the example in (Figure 3).
    • Select “’From’ Field” in the drop-down.
    • Place “youremailaddress@gmail.com” in the “Contains” box
    • Highlight “Do not forward messages to handheld”
    • Click Save

    Fill out your profile a bit more with what device, handheld software, and carrier you have. Different carriers have different links to do the filter you need. Good luck and welcome

    After figuring out a way to do this it stopped all e-mails to my BB. Now I don't recieve a copy or my e-mails at all.

    //EDIT: I figured out how to fix this after re-reading all the posts.

    I had the same issue and contacted AT&T Support about it. If you have never signed into your BIS then you will have to call your provider to have them set up the account for you. Gmail uses thread inboxs (similar to some forums) where it strings all the messages together into one conversation. Since it does that the inbox and the sent box and the same. Once you sign in follow the steps listed above and you'll be fine.
