The other main goal of using an "Outbox" folder is to avoid sending
e-mail twice through the link (one using SMTP, and the second one
IMAP to store it in the "Sent" folder). This solution does not.

How does the use of an Outbox avoid this? At first glance it seems to me
that if both the destination and the Sent folder are non-local, the
message is going to end up being copied twice in any case (even when the
destination and the folder are on the same physical machine). I think
IMAP protocol extensions have been proposed to get round this, but they
aren't widely implemented AFAIK.
