    Hi, I got my bionic yesterday. I was a Blackberry user for many years. My Blackberry was set to send a copy of every eamil I sent from my phone to myself (so it ended up on my notebook). Is there a way to do this on my droid so i don;t have to always cc myself?

    Thanks

    I don't understand why you'd cc yourself. All your sent messages are saved in your 'Sent Mail' label.
    I guess if you wanted to create a label that has a different name than 'Sent Mail' you could create a filter in your gmail settings to apply a label (called notebook?) to all your outgoing emails.

    Welcome to DF!! Glad to have you with us!

    Are you using the gmail app? If so hit your menu button, select go to labels, and there should be a sent option there.

    I know they are in the phone in the "sent" folder, but I want them on my computer.

    Not sure I follow then. They would be in your sent folder there as well if you log into your gmail account.

    I'm not using gmail. I'm using my office email. So, I'm guessing that I can't set up the phone to automatically email myself so, I want a copy in outlook on my office computer, I'll need to cc myself every time.

    Thanks

    On your Outlook, set it to leave a copy on the server, you can set it for a couple days to never delete.
    I would suggest 10 days that way you will get it on both pc and DROID.
