I think it's better just to record to the inbox myself ... I don't see
the point of bcc or cc-ing oneself. It just creates unnecessary
traffic imo.

There is a sent folder on server, though I don't use it.

I did say in my earlier mail, when I save to the "sent" folder,
instead of the inbox, this problem seems to be avoided. Though I have
not given this a thorough test because I hate having sent mail in a
separate folder, as I like one united view mode where I can read my
own emails in context.

Kind regards,
