Yes - and I do configure it like this, but users can still change them
during that session - with mandatory GPO support, they wouldn't be able to.

That's why I'd prefer this to be strictly server-side... and why I'm
excited to learn that this may be achievable now, with some reasonably
simple config changes... although this will be my first foray into the
world of sieve, so will almost definitely be asking questions about that
- and same for quotas...

Time to get my dovecot test server reinstalled (I wiped it for other
reasons) and start testing, because I want this to be working for when I
convert my main client from Courier to dovecot. I've been trying to get
them to do this for a long time, but now they have given me the go ahead
to test a few accounts with big mail boxes to see firsthand the
performance improvements. They send/receive a lot of messages with large
attachments, so being able to disable 'save to sent' and have it 'just
work' will be a huge plus.
