I use my Mac Mail to send my personal emails... However I also use it to monitor my work email. However, when I use my work Gmail account to send multiple messages either on my phone or on my computer through Gmail, whenever I go into mac Mail I have 40+ copies of the emails I sent. I tried to look in the setting if there's something that disables this... Can anyone help? It's so annoying. I send more than 40 emails a day... I don't wanna have to sort through what I sent and what I received in my email. Thanks!

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities.


    Have you clicked the arrowhead to the left of the Inbox?

    It reveals each account you've set up with Mail.

    Just click on the individual account you want to view, and only those messages will be displayed.


    To return to viewing all received messages, click back on Inbox at the top.

    Same for Drafts, Sent, Trash, and Junk.

    I'll give it another try...

    Are you automatically cc-ing composed messages, either in Mail or in Gmail?


    Mail, Preferences, Composing...
