    If I send an email from my computer on my gmail account, I'll receive the message I just sent on my iphone as if it were a new message from someone else. This is kind of annoying, does anyone else have this problem/know how to fix it? Thanks.

    Oddly, many people are having this problem, myself included. Cali Lewis from GeekBrief TV also mentioned having this problem as well. Sounds like a bug that just hasn't been sorted out yet.

    Try using Gmail with Mail, that solved it for me.

    I do, the gmail on the iPhone's mail application is what I'm talking about. Since my computer and phone are synced, I receive the same mail and can send mail from both devices, but for some reason on the phone I get the mail I send back. (Not on the mac though.)

    You're certainly not alone. I am having the same problem. Whenever I send an email from the iphone through my gmail account, it gets sent back to me. I agree with Osiris, it feels like a software bug. Nothing the next update can't fix.

    same thing happens w/my blackberry pearl. I think this is so you can have a record of the sent mail. B/c if you send it from your pc, you won't have a copy of the email on your phone.

    This is not an iPhone issue. Its GMail's POP support. If you go to gmails website you will notice the threaded emails. If you send an email from the web client and then open up Mail.app you will see it downloads the e-mails you sent as well.

    Wait for Google to come up with push IMAP or change their POP setup

    What is different about the mail application on my mac that prevents this from happening if it's a google problem? Couldn't apple just make the iPhone mail app the same as the mac mail app?

    Actually there is nothing wrong. It has to do with the way Gmail's "conversation" type system. Try gmail with any other email client on PC or mac... the same thing happens.

    if you do not use GMail's web client you can set up a rule to delete any emails from your e-mail address@gmail.com but then you won't have the conversation layout

    Hmm, I don't have this problem on my phone.

    Agreed completely. Gmail POP has always done that on any Email client I have tried. It's a Gmail issue. It's something I have just learned to live with.
