I wrote a previous post regarding saving messages sent via POP3 accounts into Gmail’s sent items yesterday and it can be read here. To expand on that there is another option to accomplish the same goal which is to set your outgoing mail server as smtp.gmail.com and use your Gmail account settings to authenticate. This second option is probably better since it will standardize how you are sending mail at all times. and more than likely sending through Gmail is more secure than with a typical SMTP server depending on the SSL options offered with the SMTP server account.

One thing to watch out for if using this second option is duplicate messages in your IMAP Sent Items folder. This problem can be easily resolved by following the below steps.


Stop Duplicate Messages Sent Via Gmail IMAP From Showing Up In Outlook 2007:

  1. Open Outlook: Double click on your Outlook 2007 icon to get it started.
  2. Open Outlook Options: Click Tools in the top navigation and select Options in the drop down which will open the configuration window shown below.

    Outlook 2007 Tools Options

  3. Open E-Mail Options: Click on the E-Mail Options button which will open a new configuration window as shown below.

    Outlook E-Mail Options

  4. Modify Sent Items Option: Uncheck the “Save copies of messages in Sent Items folder”. Then click the OK button at the bottom to save the option.

Now if you are sending through Gmail and you have the IMAP ”Sent Items” folder set to sync with the Gmail server the emails you send will show up in this folder. If the option mentioned above is checked then you will get duplicate email messages in this folder. Just make sure that your outgoing mail server is set to use Gmail instead of one of the other accounts. The Gmail SMTP server will require authentication.

    Who looks to the sent items folder anyway. Note that if you use gmail with outlook in pop3 mode, your sent items still gets sync’d althought duplicates doesn’t appear. Therefore there is no need to use the Imap. As for duplicates, I personaly use Deduper from Topalt.com to remove my duplicates, since I get many duplicates in my inbox after syncing with my smartphone anyway.

    Hello Ray,

    Thanks for the response. For me seeing Sent items is critical as I keep 5 years of sent items so I have a record of my business actions for the past 5 years. If a client ever has a question about a response or something I have completed in the past I can look it up in seconds. Also IMAP is a much cleaner technology so you can keep all messages synchronized across multiple systems. If you delete an item from one system it will be deleted on another.

    I will definitely check out Deduper. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Thanks.

    I am using Gmail to forwarded my carbon-global emails to Outlook 2007 which is great because it filters the spam. However i receive two copies of all emails, how do i stop this any insights would be appreciated

    Thanks!

    alex Reply:

    Hello Gil,

    What is carbon-global?

    Are you saying you forward address@carbon-global.domain to user@gmail.com? Then you sync Outlook with that Gmail account using IMAP?

    How many accounts do you have set up in Outlook 2007?

    Where do you see duplicates? In sent items? In your inbox?

    [Reply]

  3. Gil says:

    Hi Thanks for responding.
    Forgive me I’m not at all technical.
    The background to my problem is that on this email address xxxx@carbon-global.com I have been receiving hundreds of spam messages so I was advised to open a Google mail account and have all my xxxx@carbon-global.com mail point to it and then on to Outlook, so yes syn to Outlook via Gmail.
    This has resolved the spam issue but ever email sent to my carbon-global address, including yours, is received twice in my Outlook inbox.
    My set items appear once so that’s ok.
    Not sure what IMAP is.
    I have 4 accounts set up in Outlook but only one is syncd via Gmail
    Best

    Hello Gil,

    I would assume that the emails are being forwarded to two locations or you are getting the emails via Gmail and via the carbon-global email address. Without looking at it specifically its hard to tell but again I would assume those emails are being delivered twice by two different accounts. I can offer remote support to resolve the problem for you if you use the contact form on this website to message me if you are interested.

    I have edited your previous post to remove your email address so you don’t get more spam from bots on the Internet picking up that email address.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    That is correct. It is impossible for me to know though how all 4 of the accounts are set up without looking at them. I do know one thing for sure… Gmail will not send two copies of the email message unless you are downloading them twice.

    Hi Alex,

    Wow, I’m glad to find your website. It sounds like you know your stuff! My question is similar to the one above.

    I am using Gmail, set up through Outlook. I am getting duplicate items in my “sent” box as you described. But more noticeably, whenever I write someone an email (through gmail OR outlook), then that same email will show up in my Outlook inbox as “new mail”. It’s as though I had written my friend an email and forwarded it to myself.

    I’ve read that it’s a “gmail issue” — but forwarding is disabled in both of my gmail accounts so I don’t understand why this would be happening.

    Do you have any idea what might be going on, and how to fix it?
    Thanks so much ….
    Sincerely
    Kim

    Hello Kim,

    That sounds to me like you have the Inbox somehow synced with the Gmail “All Mail” folder. Not sure specifically what would cause that though as whenever I have setup a Gmail account via IMAP it maps directly to the Inbox on Gmail.

    Is there any way to turn off saving mail in Gmail’s “sent” folder on the server?

    This may be the root of many of the problems- if I send mail only using POP, I can save the sent message in the POP client. The server “sent” folder just fills up.

    If I want ot use both POP and the web interface, then maybe I do want to save sent messages but why can’t I choose? It was suggested to set up a filter but I can’t work out how to do it. The only thing I can do is delete all messages sent by myself which doesn’t ahve the right effect.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello alexp78,

    So you are saying that you use POP to retrieve messages from Gmail? And is it in the POP Gmail accounts “Sent Items” folder that you do not want messages to b e saved? Are you using Outlook 2007? 2003? I couldn’t tell if you are wanting to not save Sent messages in Gmail’s web interface or in your email client.

    [Reply]

  7. alexp78 says:

    Hello Alex,

    I do not want POP-originated messages to end up with copies saved in the Gmail/”Sent Mail” folder. POP users have their own “Sent” folder on their PCs.

    This is for family that do not want to ever use the WEB interface and therefore do not want their messages stored in cyberspace forever and worse still without their knowledge or ability to do anything about it.

    I’ve never had any trouble with other services such as hotmail or ntl/virgin – there is always a checkbox to disable saving copies in the WEB interface, and POP-originated mail just goes straight through the service without leaving any trace. But Gmail had me foxed. I know it is all sparkly modern with new ideas about conversations and so on, but most users just want an easy life and have other business than to grapple with how clever a service is. Gmail does not seem to have a way of opting out to a simpler level.

    I perservered and found a solution to satisfy simple POP-only users and also myself where I want POP use (at home) and WEB use (on the road) using either PC or Gmail storage as appropriate. On the way I found (ironically via Google search!!) that the mandatory Gmail/”Sent Mail” storage has caused many people the related problem of duplicate messages in their PC’s or device’s “Sent” folders. This is when the Gmail “Sent” folder as well as the Inbox is synchronised to the PC. Personally I don’t like the workaround of turning off the saving on the PC POP client, as this is the controlling interface to the service. I think of the WEB interface as another separate interface to the service.

    Here’s what I’ve done along with summary of reasoning:


    Problem:

    Messages sent from POP email client are saved forever in Gmail “Sent Mail” folder.
    No good for POP-only users where only the Inbox is downloaded, they will never see these to delete them.
    No good for POP-only users where the Sent Mail folder is also downloaded, as they will get double copies unless they turn off saving at their clients.

    Solution:

    Gmail Filter to set up: [from:me] -> Delete It (i.e. messages sent by me go straight to the “Bin”).

    POP users: “Bin” is emptied automatically after 30 days with no intervention. Also, no double messages.

    WEB users: To save a sent message longer, move it from “Bin” back to “Inbox”, optionally select and “Archive” it. It is not possible to manually move a message to the “Sent Mail” folder in Gmail.

    The “Sent Mail” folder is now always empty and redundant. In other words it has been completely defeated: RIP.

    Hope this is useful to someone.

    This certainly solves the problem, but I use Outlook 2007 to connect to Exchange also, and this configuration means work sent messages do not save. I need to save these messages. How can I configure sent messages not to save for my gmail account only? Thanks.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello Peter,

    You should be able to accomplish this using MS Outlook Rules. Make a different rule for Sent Items with Exchange and Sent Items with Gmail.

    [Reply]

    John Porter Reply:

    Peter & Alex,

    I may have solved the problem! When you have both an Exchange account, and a Gmail IMAP acount, you have to leave the switch op for “Save copies of messages in Sent Items folder” or your exchange mail will not save in the “Sent Folder” on the Exchange server (although you will only have one copy in your IMAP folder as desired).

    To solve the problem, redirect the IMAP sent mail to the “Trash” foler on your “Account Settings” for the IMAP account.

    GOTO –> TOOLS –> ACCOUNT SETTINGS (E-mail tab). Open your gmail IMAP account and click on “More Settings…” From here, click on the “Folders” tab and select “Choose an existing folder or create a new folder to save your sent items for this account in…” then expand the “[Gmail]” folder and select “Trash”

    The net-net is Gmail automatically save a copy of ALL sent emails into your IMAP “Sent Folder”. The additional copy is thrown into the trah.

    Under this scenario, your exchange sent items are stored on the exchange server, and your Gmail sent items are save (just one , not duplicates) are saved on the Gmail IMAP server.

    Hope this helps, and hope my description is not too wordy…

    Hello

    My problem is as follows: In my Outlook 2007 it is configured to exchange server for one acconmt and then it is also configured to 2 Gmail accounts via IMAP. i was also getting duplicate mail in my IMAP sent folder so I ” Modify Sent Items Option: Uncheck the “Save copies of messages in Sent Items folder”. and that sorted the dupliucates out. But now No copy of sent mail appears in my sent folder for my exchange server mail.

    Does that make sense?

    thank you very much.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello Robin Bayhack,

    That makes sense. This is a common problem. The configuration will depend on which account you are using as the primary account. You need to configure the secondary account to save its sent mail in the primary accounts sent items folder and this should resolve the issue.

    Hi, I’m quite confused by something that occurs not all the time, only periodically, related to this thread.
    I use Mail (Mac) synced to Gmail via IMAP.

    When I write a long email with multiple edits, using my Mail program, and after I’ve sent the final version email, I’ve noticed that on Gmail (using the web browser) all the different drafts appear in the Conversation, and to all intents and purposes seem to be Sent items.

    Could this mean that the recipient is getting multiple emails from me, with all my different drafts of the email? (potentially embarrassing) or is Gmail somehow just saving the drafts when it syncs with Mail?

    Any ideas? I’ve not found any mention of this in any other forum or known issues so far.

    Thanks,
    Trudi

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello Trudi,

    Do they actually show as drafts or do they show as sent messages? I would make sure you upgrade Mac Mail to the latest version as it has been awhile but I used to have some clients using Mac Mail and we had various problems. Because it only happens sometimes it seems like it would be some type of connection issue or something. Do you have another mail client you can use for awhile to see if it ever happens there?

    I would love to hear the outcome of this so if you get more information please share.

    Thanks.

    Similar problem here. Compose message in Outlook, send, my message ends up in sent items, and also in inbox as new email. As if I ccd myself.

    On Gmail, it only shows in sent items and not on Inbox, so filtering “from: me to me” doesn’t work because it doesn’t show on Gmail inbox only on Outlook Inbox.

    Solution I did:

    On Gmail, go to sent items, select all, more actions, filter all messages like these, option: delete.

    Actually, am still observing. test mails so far didn’t go to Outlook Inbox. Ended up in Gmail trash. I still have my sent items on Outlook.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello Nik,

    You can make this so sent items are stored in Gmail. Just change the sent items folder to the Gmail Sent Items folder. It will work differently for the primary Gmail account and any other Gmail accounts that you have but it is possible to have all accounts show their sent items in your Gmail account Sent Items list. It will take some playing around with but the article should provide the groundwork to make it all happen.

    Hope that helps.

    I happened to stumble across this thread today. I’m using Gmail IMAP with Outlook 2007. The problem with your solution, for me, is that I have another non-Gmail IMAP account that I’m using. If I use your solution by unchecking the box in Outlook Email Options, I’ll lose all my non-Gmail sent items.

    Is this correct? Is there another solution I can implement?

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello MadDog,

    Not necessarily. You could actually set up a rule specifically for that IMAP account to save a copy of those sent messages in whatever folder you like. It becomes a little more complicated with 2 IMAP accounts though. My personal suggestion would be to forward that IMAP accounts email to the Gmail IMAP account. Then you can just configure the account in Outlook 2007 so when you reply to messages sent to that account you can change the account you are sending from the Gmail IMAP account to the Other IMAP account.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks.

    OK.

    Now here’s the real bummer. I actually tried unchecking the box and am still getting duplicates in my Gmail Sent Folder, which would lead me to believe that the root cause lies somewhere in my Gmail settings, but for the life of me, I can’t figure it out.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello MadDog,

    You will be able to configure this how you want so don’t give up! I am guessing that you are seeing the duplicate email messages in Sent Items now because you are testing by sending email to yourself. This happens because you are authorized with the SMTP server with your primary IMAP account so even though you are sending from a secondary account the authorization has already happened for your primary account and thus the rule is activating but then also the IMAP sync happens and you receive that email.

    Do make sure that all of the secondary accounts use their own SMTP servers. Then test with a mail account you do not have configured in Outlook. Make sure it does not use smtp.gmail.com as its outgoing server as well.

    All those settings are spread across so many tabs in Outlook. I still have to tackle the way it handles deleted mail.

So I’ve still got some research to do. imap can be kind of tricky when you’re not familiar with a client. Sent, Drafts, Spam…

    The problem with this solution is that if you have more than one email account set up in Outlook, you won’t be saving sent emails for your other account(s). There’s apparently no way to manage the behavior of sent items for individual accounts — the options “don’t save sent” setting is global.

    [Reply]

    alex Reply:

    Hello BJN,

    It depends on how you have everything setup. If you are sending through an IMAP server you can sync your Sent Items and save all of your sent mail as well. In my scenario I have a hidden GMAIL account as my primary and everything else is sent through various other accounts and saves each sent item to the default GMAIL account. I currently have 10 email accounts setup this way and everything works flawlessly.

    Hi Alex -
    thanks for the info but I’m still unclear how to deal with the multiple account issue presented. I understand the solution works with multiple IMAP account, but what about an IMAP account and a corporate account through an exchange server? With those two accounts — if I check the “save sent mail” box I get duplicates of everything I send through my gmail account. But if I un-check the “save sent mail” box, then copies of what I’m sending from my corporate account are not saved. Is there a way around this problem? Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for the advice, it worked for me.

    For Ken:
    There is an option in the setup for the account itself. Go to Account Settings \ Change E-mail Account \ More Settings
    on the folders tab change the radio button from Save mail in the Outlook Sent Items Folder to Choose an existing Folder” and choose your Gmail Sent Items.

    I think you will still get copies in your sent items. I set up a view of my sent items to only show items sent on my exchange account (View \ Define Views \ Customize Views looks for Filter \ Advanced

    Another option – which I chose after a few other attempts – is to set up a separate user in Windows, and set up Outlook in that user for the Exchange account. I did this because I wanted more control of the calendar and contacts than is possible when there is an exchange account in Outlook.

Essentially ‘pull’ all sent mail from the Sent Mail folder in GoogleApps. I can drag and drop but that’s an ugly process.

    If you send mail through the IMAP account then the sent items will sync but if not you would have to create some form of rule that also sent mail to the IMAP account and then a rule on the IMAP account that dropped it into the sent items folder upon receiving.

    I’m probably not be making myself clear as I am sending the one account through IMAP and the rest are POP. I’d like the Sent Items folder in Outlook to be the repository for ALL account’s sent messages. Not even sure that’s possible as it would have to sync/add and mix in messages with other accounts.

    Ultimately having to open/search/look for messages sent in multiple places is inefficient and definitely annoying.

    Hello John,

    Its one of those things you will have to play around with the settings to get the exact right solution for what you are wanting to do with multiple accounts. I forward all email from many other accounts into a GMAIL account and the above solution worked for me at the time.

    Thanks.

    I use pop3 instead if IMAP. For those of you who have multiple email accounts with different servers including an exchange server and uses an email client like outlook 2007 or similar, this is what I did. I created a filter in google that filters all emails:

    from: myemail DOT gmail DOT com/click next/ then check: skips inbox and delete it.

    My outlook saves the sent items and I don’t get it back in my inbox (thank goodness). If you have multiple google accounts, you will need to use this filter for each account to stop it from returning to your inbox. The only caution is, if you want to keep a copy of the sent items in google, then this will not be good to use. But, I exclusively use outlook and it works great for me.
