I can provide the start of a solution, but it will require someone who 
knows how to write MailMate commands to get you all the way there.

I have all my sent mail moved into the Inbox of the identity that sent 
the email. For that I have put a `Rule` on the `Sent Mail` virtual 
mailbox. If the condition is `Date is within the last 1 days`, it 
matches all emails as soon as they are sent. I think this would work for 
you as well. The question then is what action to add. Well, there’s a 
`Run Command` action. The trick is somehow writing an mmbundle (command) 
that can get the ID of a message. It seems like something that should be 
simple, but I have no idea how to write MailMate commands. Maybe someone 
else on the list can provide the missing piece?
