Perhaps you are using the web interface, and we are using POP to a real
email client?  The problem I have is the automatic archiving of the
emails I send, and once archived, POP can't access them, so I never see
them.  I LIKE seeing my emails coming back from a mailing list.  Tells
me that the "best effort, but no guarantees" email system is actually
working.  Also helps with threading at this end.

Might be worth while seeing if IMAP access to gmail lets you look at
the archives.  But still that's gmail doing things with my email that I
don't want.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
