The rule may move other mail
Authored by: alexmathew on Aug 30, '06 08:54:28AM

The hint is good - but the rule may inadvertantly move ALL mail that contain the "From" as Myself to sent. I usually always copy myself when I send a message from Mail - its a good reminder and also acts as an To-Do list - if these get filed in Sent, I would forget about it. That said, its only a matter of figuring out a good rule or forget about the rule and file it manually!

Nope; I do the same thing, that's why there's the "To does not contain: your name" step. This way, sent mail to self is bypassed by the rule.
