If my computer happens to download my email from Gmail first, my phone won't get it and vice versa. Anyway to allow both to get my emails?
You'll have to go to your mail settings on both the pc and phone and choose to leave msgs on server for a period of time.
That's not what causes the problem with gmail. This happens on all phones, BB, treo and now iPhone. I believe it's because gmail stores your sent message as a new message in your inbox. So the phone thinks it is a new message. CCing myself is off.Hopefully Apple will enable filters to avoid this in the future. Bcc:ing yourself on sent messages form the iPhone is good because you can add a gmail filter to stick the sent messages in your gmail outbox, and always be able to search your outgoing messages, regardless of where they are sent from.
To get rid of it for now, just go to settings, mail, and turn "Always cc myself" off.
Ya I can't even seem to get a gmail filter to work.Hmm, indeed. Looks like we're stuck until Apple implements some filters in the Mail app. Weak!
