    Posted on December 19th, 2010 HandyAndy No comments

    I wanted to offer my congratulation to my friend Walter Scott, CEO of GFI Software; he was listed in the Redmond Magazine December issue. The article was titled, 10 Third-Party Execs to Watch. I was going to post a link but it appears the article is only available in the printed magazine; whoever said paper was dead may have been a bit premature. Anyways congrats again Walt!

  • Tame Gmail putting sent items in your Outlook Inbox

    Posted on December 19th, 2010 HandyAndy 2 comments

    If you use multiple devices to pop your Gmail and you find your sent items in your inbox, this is due to the way Gmail handles sent items. According to a post I found on this BB site  

    “Gmail webmail accounts do not have separate sent items and inbox folders. The Gmail account web page contains a Sent Mail link on the left side, but this is not a separate folder from the inbox.

    Email messages in Gmail are grouped into conversations, resulting in all sent email messages and replies from others appearing as a single email message entry in the inbox. Although this grouping allows easy reading and viewing on the Gmail web page, it results in copies of sent email messages arriving on the BlackBerry smartphone as new email messages when integrated with a BlackBerry Internet Service account.”

    So to work around this for your outlook client, create a rule in outlook that says when mail arrives from move to folder “Sent Items” this will keep the clutter out of your inbox. Of course if you really do need to send yourself a message, don’t forget to go get it back out of the Sent Items folder.

    Searching around with bingle I found many solutions, but none of them worked for my client’s setup, ultimately this workaround did the trick. Hopefully it will work for you as well.
