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?

windows 7 starter
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

I am trying to set up my Gmail account in Outlook 2010 using IMAP. In previous versions of Outlook, when I hit "delete" in Outlook, the message left the “Inbox,” but was still in the “All Mail” folder (I believe it removed the label "Inbox" from the message).
