I think the question title tells it all.  It is so weird.  Example:  I have a message in my Inbox, and I forward it.  It shows up in Sent, of course, But also in the Inbox.  It must be a setting, but what and where?  Any clues?

Look in Outlook, Options, Mail and down to Save options. Make sure "When replying.... " is unchecked and the 3 options below are checked. Restart Outlook and test.

You may need to remake the Outlook Profile but try the above first.

Is your Inbox set to Conversation view? If so then showing the Forwarded mail is the correct behaviour as it is a continuation of the Conversation.

At the top of the Inbox there should be the Search box and then below that a banner showing how the Inbox is arranged and sorted. I have mine set to Conversation view and the banner for mine shows:

Arrange By: Date (Conversations)        | Newest on Top
