Default Problem with Filters/bcc on BWC

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7290 and am using it happily however I am having a few problems trying to deal with sent items.
I first tried auto bcc - this does not work for me if I bcc the same address as used on the handheld. It does work if I use another address.
I tried to bcc manually on messages - this does not work with the same address as above.
So, I tried cc. This works.
Next i tried to set up a filter so it would get sent back to BB. On the BWC I told it not to forward if from my own address. This makes it not arrive back on my BB but also not back on my Outlook on my desktop.
I have been trying for days now!
Anyone have any ideas or things I may be missing?
Thanks in advance,

By "does not work," do you mean the messages are bounced back undeliverable, or are they just not showing up? Some e-mail accounts treat bcc'ed messages as spam, or suspected spam, and don't put them in the inbox. Are you able to bcc to the address in question from other e-mail accounts?

As for the BWC filter, I'm not sure why it would prevent the cc'ed messages from showing up in Outlook. Does your mail stay on the server after being polled by the BWC?
