I'm running on my Mac (Snow Leopard). Two GMail accounts are linked to it using POP. There is an annoying bug which causes certain messages from one of the account to show up in my Inbox. They are always messages I sent to a certain account, and are 6-7 messages from one thread. If I delete them, they just show up again if I restart or switch to a different mailbox and back, although the number of messages goes down, until it reaches one, and goes back to six-seven. The only solution I have found is to delete the offending thread from within GMail, except that then another thread takes its place and starts annoying me.

Any solution?

Are you using POP or IMAP? – Josh Feb 17 '10 at 3:12

I had a similar problem with GMail constantly showing several messages as inboxed messages. It was like it eternally received the exact same messages. Your best bet would be to contact the GMail team at

Did they resolve your problem? – user19354 Mar 26 '10 at 17:50
Yes. I'm not sure what they did, but it stopped happening. – Josh K Mar 26 '10 at 18:11
