Won't that make the outgoing messages to appear only in the
particular folder (and not in Sent)? Ideally what I would want is to
still have the outgoing in Sent but be able to see the whole thread in
the particular folder in which the incoming message is (the one
starting the thread). That is how it is in Gmail's UI.

I already have that set through filters in Gmail itself. But it makes
no sense to create filters for each particular address. It would need
hundreds of filters. Or are you suggesting to do that at the root
account "folder" and simply choose "Apply to subfolders"? Would that

Actually I thought about that too. But I was hesitant to do it in order
no to break any "standard" of how mail is kept server side.

Yes, I know that. Thanks :)
