Also your Gmail Settings' Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab's POP Download should be Enable POP for all email and When messages are accessed with POP field should have Keep Gmai's copy in the Inbox selected.

Please help. I set it up on iPhone 4 and iMail on my MacBook. Problem I now have is that I also receive all email that I send from this account in my inbox. How can I stop this please? Thank you.

I faced the same issue. The way I found to solve it is to setup a filter in the inbox of the gmail account with the following parameters : if the message comes from your.email@gmail.com then the action is to 1-bypass inbox, 2-mark as read, 3-delete. The drawback is that you cannot send an email to yourself on purpose anymore. But this is not what you do often anyway.
