    How can I prevent an exchange gmail account from CC'ing myself all the time? My phone is not set to CC myself. My mobileme account works great, but every time I send an email from gmail, I always get a copy of it on my iMac. Is this a "feature"?

    Been using it forever, never had that issue. Perhaps the issue is with your Gmail settings.

    Check your gmail settings. I've never heard of this happening.

    Which settings? I've been through them all. It doesn't cc me if I use the website. Only if I use my phone.

    I'll have to check when I get home. I think it might be set up as pop...

    EDIT: It's set up as pop when it synced from iTunes. Can Mail handle gmail IMAP?

    Why use IMAP or POP when Gmail gives you MS Exchange support for free?

    Google, Google Sync for iPhone.

    Tried to set this up as imap from RealVNC on my phone. I know gmail has a help page for imap with Apple Mail 4, but I'm running 3.6 on 10.5.8. Do I really need to put snow leopard on my iMac? Can I edit my existing pop connection to a imap? So far haven't been able to make it work.

    It is exchange on my iPhone. Trying to figure out out to make it an exchange on my iMac too.

    Got it fixed finally. I had to create a new account in Mail and set it up as imap. It wouldn't let me edit my existing pop entry for gmail. Thanks!
