    I switched from POP to using IMAP and it doesn't do that to me anymore.

    how'd you do that? In the phones prefs or at gmail.com?

    both. You need to turn on iMap support for gmail and than choose other when you set up your e-mail clinet. Gmail.com will tell you what settings to put in.

    the reason why you get it in your inbox is because
    with gmail when an email is sent it automatically is
    stored in your inbox in preparation for the startup
    of your conversation.. or whatever they call it..

    if anyone has an easy way to switch from pop to
    imap please let me know as well.. i've kept gmail
    off my iphone since i got it 3 days ago and am over
    not having that account accessible!

    The youtube link is perfect. That is what I used and everything worked great in about 3 minutes.
