Is there a way to make my sent emails show up in my inbox on the iPad, similar to how it is shown in the gmail web view? I can do this in the Mac app by creating a smart mailbox that includes both inbox and sent messages. Is there something I can set up, either on the iPad or in gmail, that would let me do this?

  • Why can't you just add yourself as a recipient? – user16435 Jun 23 '12 at 14:18
  • I cc myself, but for some reason I only see the message in the SENT message folder, but not the INBOX. This seems quirky. Does anyone else have this type of behavior in Apple Mail. – user28776 Sep 8 '12 at 16:20

You could always simply view the "Gmail/All Mail" folder.

Inside Mail on your iPad, go to Mailboxes-> Gmail (under accounts) -> All Mail.

You'll see messages you've sent as well. If Gmail is your only mail account, simply stay in the All Mail folder all the time.


Go to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars and turn on "Always BCC Myself". Hope that helps!


If you send the message, send it CC: to your own mail address to receive a copy into your inbox.
