Hey guys, I have a quick question...I really don't like the feature of gmail where it saves your sent messages into the inbox. Instead, I would like them restricted to the "Sent Mail" folder so I don't have to sift through my own messages I sent. Does anyone know how I can do this? Thanks for the help!

In the inbox?

My sent messages don't appear in my inbox with the exception of sent messages included in a conversation (but they still don't appear until I open a received email in the same conversation).

I only get sent messages in my inbox if I send them my the online gmail. If I send mail from OS X mail they go to my sent folder. Are you sending from the online client or from OS X mail?

you can just create a rule (in Mail) to move the message to the sent folder in mail if it is sent from you.

gmail SENT box

I had the same problem until I read one of the posts...I went to Mac's gmail and clicked on RULES. There I just put in my own email information and clicked on that I wanted the emails I send to be put into the SENT box, not the INBOX.
It took me 3 years to find a solution!!
I hope you have already done this.
Have a good day...:)
