Because you send using gmail smtp server sent mail automatically come in gmail's sent folder. Don't create a local extra copy please!

Do you see gmail sent items folder in WLM? You use IMAP or POP?

Same problem

I use Windows 7 starter. Hotmail and gmail both set up on WLM. Using POP. No problem with hotmail. WLM puts all my gmail sent items in the Inbox with nothing in the Sent Items box. Logging on directly to gmail (ie not thru WLM) the sent emails show up ok in sent box. "Save sent emails in sent box" definitely ticked. Suggestions?

have you tried setting it up with IMAP instead and see if it fixes the problem, sometimes live mail and gmail do not play friendly with POP settings
