It’s quite common for someone to use the same email account on multiple devices. A phone, computer, tablet, and maybe even a second computer, could all be signed into the same email account. Some types of email accounts can synchronize sent emails at an account level, meaning that you will be able to see your sent messages from any device, regardless of which one was used to compose the message. But others don’t synchronize in this way, which is why the option to copy yourself on sent emails is present in applications like the iPhone Mail app.
But if you are receiving these sent email copies in your inbox, and either don’t want or don’t need them, then you might be looking for a way to stop it. Our tutorial below will show you how to stop copying yourself on every email that you send from your iPhone SE.
