I'm glad to know I'm not as rare a case as I sometimes assume. The 
difference is that I don't bcc myself, since it creates a double message 
(one in the Sent folder and one in the Inbox) that offends my sense of 
economy. I set things to file themselves in the most logical place when 
I can, and manually delete or file items in the Sent folder 
periodically, which sounds like a huge effort only when you're not used 
to it.

But if I could design my own email system, there would be no Sent folder 
at all.
