Exclamation Gmail and Blackberry

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all-
A quick question. So I have my gmail address added as my email account on my blackberry and I've come to a problem. Because gmail saves the entire email "conversation" I'm constantly getting carbon copied my own email messages that I'm trying to send to other people. I will send an original email or reply to someone else, and I automatically get a copy of the email I just sent right in my inbox. This is VERY frustrating because I constantly have to delete messages that I wrote that show up in my inbox! I think it has to do with the fact that emails are formatted as "conversations" and that's messing with my blackberry. I took the phone to the Att store and they just said that it was because it's gmail and that there is no actual setting on the blackberry phone that will change that. Any ideas?

This is a known issue with Gmail and has been discussed on here many times. You need to login to your BIS site and create a filter excluding sent items from going to your device.

Your BIS site is your carrier's website that links your device and your GMail.

Try this.... if you don't know what your Internet sign-on is, you may have to create that using your personal email setup wizard on your blackberry.

HOW-TO: Prevent G-mail "Sent Items" from being sent to your handheld.
