    I posted this in the Google Help forum but they always take so long to respond so I decided to post this here too for a second opinion.

    This involves a bug (maybe?) I noticed in Gmail just a bit ago.

    I sent myself a message (titled "mtd3", I send myself messages to transfer thing between two computers sometimes) with three attachments and the names of those messages. I noticed I sent while sending the message, so I deleted it, deleted it from the trash and started the process to send it again to me with the same name ("mtd3"), same text, but in a different order and the same attachments.

    so, I noticed that while I was uploading my attachments, the deleted message returned! I deleted that and my new one and started a new one with the same attachments but a different name ("momadada"). Nothing happened, but I deleted that one anyway. So then I started on another message with a different name ("mothdath")/same attachments/same text and the message I just deleted came back into my inbox!

    I then put these in attachments in rar files, and no repeats happened while I was composing or sending the messages with the rar attachments.

    Later on, I was just looking through my inbox, and one of these deleted messages with my .mp3 attachments returned to my inbox again!

    So how am I getting these messages I sent myself that I deleted from my inbox and my trash?

    The attachments are some music files I am transferring from the computer I am borrowing to my new computer. These music files all come from blogs I trust and written by people I know, or the popular music review website Pitchfork Media (who are given the mp3s by the artists and labels themselves). Trustworthy sites, so the content of the messages is not an issue.
