    Phone alerts me when i send a message

    Advertisement



    My phone alerts me when I send a message as if I'm recieving an e-mail from myself. It has just started doing this. As far as I know it dosen't do this with my other e-mail. If it helps, the account thats giving me problems is a gmail account. Is there anything I should do to identify the problem first or is it just a setting that I can change?

    Yes this is a Known problem, you need to login to your Gmail account and setup a filter not to recieve emails from yourself.

    I hate it when gmail does that... I shut that feature off long long ago.

    especcially when u have a plan for only a 1000 messages and when u get emails from urself those messages are wasted. Thx for the filter tip

    I don't believe getting emails applies to SMS so you don't have to worry about that there.

    Why would you have it forward to your phone number/sms? You sure you don't mean *pushed* to your phone? Pin me if its confusing.

    Re: Phone alerts me when i send a message

    I have the same issue of receiving sent gmail items to my inbox.

    I tried to set up a filter on gmail such that messages from "myself"@gmail.com "Skip the inbox (archive it)". But the messages kept coming.

    What is the specific filter I should apply?

    Thanks.

    Re: Phone alerts me when i send a message

    I realized that this filter had to be set up on my Cingular BB account, not at the Gmail page. But now there is another problem.

    I have 2 email accounts on my blackberry - gmail and work. Now, if I send an email from gmail to my work account, I STILL don't receive it on my blackberry in the work folder. I thought the filter would have only applied to the gmail account.

    Sometimes I'll 'send myself' pictures so that they can be on my blackberry - the resolution looks better when I do this as opposed to transferring them with Desktop Manager.

    Any ideas?
