Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Sent Mail goes to Inbox

Outlook 2010 Sent Mail goes to Inbox

Hello, I just set up Microsoft 2010 this week and was configuring Outlook 2010. After everything was done, I found that every time I send an email, a copy of it is automatically sent to my inbox. This would normally be fixable by applying a rule (every email I send to my own account be automatically deleted or something to that extent), but this email account is for the entire company, and they are still being forwarded the copies that I send.

Would this issue have anything to do with me using 2010 and my co-workers using 2007? Or maybe because we're using gmail, which hasn't been confirmed to work with Outlook 2010?

Please help.

I've tried everything I could on that conversation (except for turning POP3 off since this is a company email and I can't mess with that).

I have no filters on (on gmail), and even when I put one on (Matches:
Do this: Skip Inbox) it doesn't work.

All of the links above just shows you how to configure your email.. which I have done several times (I'm still very grateful for the effort though). It hasn't done anything to stop sending my sent mail to my inbox.

Divide and Conquer


I assume that you already looked at your settings in File...Options...Mail...Save Settings to make sure that "When replying to a message that is not in the Inbox, save the reply in the same folder" is unchecked?

If that's the case, try a divide and conquer strategy by creating a new profile with the same account information - does the sent mail stay in that profile's Inbox? If so, I think it's a server issue. If not, it's something in the original profile.

Hope this helps!

Thank you!

I though I was being smart and reducing clutter to move replies that were to messages not in the inbox. oooop! that worked for me! Thanks again! I read it before but it did not compute!

Still No Unified Inbox in Outlook 2010!
Unless I'm missing a trick, there is still no unified Inbox in Outlook 2010. In this day and age of most people having multiple email accounts, I find that amazing. MS have managed to do it excellently in the Mac version of Office 2011 Outlook, so why are we losing out?
