View Full Version : Mail keeps CC'ing me in.

Friend of mine has this problem, every email he sends, he gets a copy sent to his account so has to keep deleting them. It's like a BCC as the email doesn't show any other recipients. He says he's not changes any settings/prefs.
Anyone have any ideas

Are you using GMail?

If so then it's normal since Gmail uses a thread organization you sent messages appears in the inbox and Mail.app fetches the inbox content. You might want to create a rules in Mail.app to redirect your sent messages to the Sent folder.

Have him look in Mail preferences under Composing. Is "Automatically Cc: or Bcc: myself" checked off?

Just called him, he says he's already looked at it and the box is unchecked.
I've asjed him to check it, send a test email and see what happens, then take it off again.
The odd thing is that effectively he is the BCC but the email shows no other recipient, surely if you are the BCC it should show the main recipient.
Also, on every email at the bottom there is an 'equals' symbol
