    Don't know if this was addressed yet, but "Spam" mail from my gmail (spam folder - duh!) keeps popping up in my "Sent Mail" folder in Mac mail. I found this post online, but am not tech savvy enough to know what they're talking about...

    The bottom line is, spam email is made to look like you sent it, in an attempt to bypass the spam filter

    It looks freakier than it is
    It doesn't cause any real issues, it just looks bad in your sent folder

    I wouldn't worry about it

    yea... I understood the gist of it.

    Just not sure how to go about fixing it (aside from ignoring it).
