    Isn't it called iMail? Guess not, mail.app

    The regular Apple made mail program.

    Are you using pop to access Gmail? If so, set up a mail rule. Setup a rule that says any mail sent from your email address is moved to your sent folder.

    I don't like pop mail. I much prefer IMAP. You can ready my little tutorial about how to setup Gmail to be IMAP-Mail.app friendly here.

    Go to mail--preferences--rules. Use the form to setup a rule.

    Edit: you can also set up a rule to make the message appear already read.

    Basically, pop removes messages from the inbox and physically downloads them to your computer. IMAP just lets you access the server. Benefits of IMAP is you can access your mail in total sync from multiple computers and/or locations, which is something you can't do with pop.
