It's the user's MUA that writes a copy of the message to a "Sent" folder
(presumably it's been sent to the MTA). So your web interface would have
to do something like that. SquirrelMail, for example, comes with the
parameter "sent_folder = INBOX.Sent" configured by default (I don't know
what magic goes on in the backend for the message copy).
