    i am having this problem all of the sudden with both of my gmail accounts on my iphone. 3.0 3GS. so i deleted both accounts from the iphone and recreated them still happening. any mail i send from the iphone comes back as new mail in the inbox, but it is being sent. is this a gmail problem? i am setup as imap (confirmed by looking in the settings). help.

    Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Always BCC Myself -- turn that off.

    It's a global Mail setting so deleting and recreating the accounts wouldn't change it. Try that.
