I certainly have no problem with there being the ability to specify an
address that is always Bcc'd on sent mail. I think that's a fine
idea. I just think that saving local copies of sent mail directly is
an important thing to do, and we should figure out the best way to
support it correctly. Every mailer that I know of has some way to
save local copies of sent mail, and I think most users will expect
such a feature.
An important thing to consider is that all of this locally saved sent
mail should also be immediately incorporated into the database so that
it can be immediately searched and displayed with it's relevant
