## Repro :
1. setup a gmail account
2. compose an email to yourself
3. refresh to receive the email
4. move the email to the sent mail folder

## Expected :
2 copies of the email

## Actual :
only 1 copy of the email.  This is also the case on the server.

## Note :
1. data loss; edge case.
2. It's a pretty extreme edge case.
This doesn't happen on my hotmail account.
Summary: [email] if an email that was sent to yourself is moved to the sent folder, there is only 1 email → [email][imap] if an email that was sent to yourself is moved to the sent folder, there is only 1 email
This makes sense.  gmail does not actually work like a normal IMAP server.  It effectively only stores one copy of each message, but then it tracks what labels are on that message.  The labels are manifest as folders via IMAP.  So if you try and move a message into a folder twice, it will still only be there once because a message can't have the same label on it more than once.
