You don't need send-via-IMAP for that, we're already doing this without 
it. Just configure your MTA to deliver a copy of sent mail to user's 
sent folder (and some mechanism for user opt-in if needed) and configure 
clients to not save the copy. A sieve script to add 'Seen' flag to those 
messages may also be a good thing to add.
