For some reason, whenever I'm typing an email in Apple's Mail application, it will send what i'm writing to my blackberry as i'm writing it. Then it will send the message to the bberry after I send it. Is this an issue with my phone or the mail application?

Because whenever I use gmail's account on their website, I don't have this issue.

Just a guess - we won't know if it works until you 2 try it and report back - but go into your Gmail account at the source (host) side using your browser to access Google mail, select "account settings" and then the "Fowarding and POP/IMAP" page, and select "Disable IMAP" in the "IMAP Access" area. There may be something similar you have to do to turn off IMAP on your mail client, but I'm not sure. Try just the host side first, and if that doesn't work, look for a similar setting on the client side.

Others have asked this question but haven't reported back whether the change worked, so please report back.

I turned of IMAP, but not POP. Don't know if that makes a difference. It hasn't sent in the last few minutes. I have to say, this is a BIG issue, since it doesn't just send am email to my phone, if I type a "to" address, it sends multiple emails to whomever I'm writing, in various stage of incompletion. really dangerous for my business.

If it happens again, I'll repost and let you know.

It may be a little late in coming, but I too had this problem. It can be solved by going into mail->preferences->accounts->[select googlemail account] and then uncheck the box that says 'store draft messages on the server'.

You may have worked this out already but it might help someone else.
