No Alert For Self Sent Emails

Saturday, January 15th, 2011

In case you experienced a situation where you sent an email to yourself (appears as ‘me’), and found that Gmail Notifier failed to notify for it, you should know that there is a technical limitation to the Gmail IMAP service. According to Wikipedia:

“By design, Gmail does not deliver all of a user’s e-mails. When downloading mail through POP or IMAP access, Gmail fails to deliver messages that users have sent to themselves if the client has a copy of it already.”
