I have 3 pop3 accounts set up in Outlook 2010, one of which is a Gmail account. Every time I receive an email addressed to one of my other emails, it places a copy in the Gmail account folder in Outlook. I have no rules set up for this, and thus am stumped as to why it is doing this. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated as I've spent hours trying to resolve this by deleting and setting up accounts again, and removing ALL rules, but nothing works. Many thanks!

Are you using pop3 or Imap? Either way, I'd suspect your sharing a datafile, and your Gmail datafile is the only data file you have and thus point to it, confusing Outlook. – Dave Aug 15 '13 at 8:42
Hi Dave. Thanks for your response. I am using pop3. Tested IMAP for the GMail account, and it did the same thing. Re the "datafile", are you referring to the pst files? If so, they are 3 different files, I checked! – Andrea Aug 15 '13 at 9:21
Hmmm. This is more baffling. Does the issue occur when you load up in safe mode – Dave Aug 15 '13 at 9:58
Nope, happens all the time, regardless. Perhaps it's time for a delete and re-install! Thanks, Dave – Andrea Aug 15 '13 at 10:27
