Modest stores sent email and draft emails locally. Evolution, for instance, allows you to choose folders on your IMAP account, in the preferences.

I use IMAP specifically so I can use any client on any machine and see all of my mails. I don't want any client storing things locally, except as a cache. Thus, I'd like to keep my Sent and Drafts folders on my IMAP server.
