Default Email getting too many messages!

Please Login to Remove!

I have my Blackberry 9500 setup to receive email from gmail. Every time I send an email I get 3 in my inbox. One email confirms it was sent and another confirms it was received. The 3rd email is my email that I sent. Why am I getting these unnecessary emails?

Also, when I compose an email from my computer, I will get emails to my blackberry as I type the email. So I will have 3 or 4 messages in my inbox from the same email!!! This is very irritating. Can anyone help?

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830)

Also, go to your mailbox settings, and change send and receive receipt options to no.

dparvin's suggestion is correct, and will address some of what you're referring to.

What are your settings under email options on your Blackberry? Do you have delivery confirmation turned on?

Regarding receipt of multiple copies of emails while typing them at your desktop, it sounds like you're receiving a copy of the message each time it is automatically saved as a draft. What email client are you using and how is it configured (i.e. POP3/IMAP, other settings)?

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