That would be nice, to auto sort mail into different sent folders like work vs personal. However i do not think it is possible as

" Sieve scripts are executed by the Dovecot LDA (Local Delivery Agent) and/or the Dovecot LMTP service. That is why you first need to check whether LDA or LMTP are actually being used. At least one of these is supposed to be called/accessed from your MTA, e.g. Exim or Postfix, for local message delivery. "
