I have my Gmail synched with my blackberry. Everything works great, except: Can i get the emails i send from my gmail account on my computer to also show up as sent mail on my blackberry (with the checkmark next to it)?

Shouldn't it work if he blind copies himself on every email? Downfall to that being every email he sends goes to his inbox....

As said above, you can set up an auto bcc so that every message you send also is blind copied to the sending account. Will not show up as read however as gmail doesn't have 2 way sync or reconciliation.

The best way I've found to access mails sent on from gMail on a computer is to use the Blackberry gMail application (works for me because I only access sent mails occasionally).

If you do keep your mailboxes separate, like noelstrom says, you could create a gMail account only for your computer gMail sends, bcc the sends there, and you'd have them all in one place (but you'd be accessing them as an Inbox if that matters). If you don't keep your mailboxes separated on your BB, this approach could create a huge mess.

I've been using the GMail app for when I need to look for older emails or find anything extensive. That is probably the easiest and cleanest way to do that.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
