    Okay I'm getting really frustrated by this and it's clogging my inbox.

    The facts:
    - Aluminum Macbook Late '08
    - Mail Version 4.6 (1085)
    - Mac OS X Version 10.6.8

    -Using Gmail
    -Turned off POP3 (using IMAP now), no help
    -Recently started using Chrome (don't know if this has anything to do with it) over Firefox

    Problem:
    Whenever I compose a mail either through www.gmail.com or with Mail, I keep getting a copy of my message in my inbox!

    I've already tried looking up how to solve this problem, to no avail.

    Gmail is sending you a copy for you email client.

    Gmail's IMAP is different from most IMAP accounts. See the TidBITS article:
