There are three ways you can do this:
1. Have him configure his MUA to BCC himself for every email he sends.
2. Have him configure his MUA to store Sent messages in a "Sent"
folder that is in his IMAP connection instead of in a local "Sent"
folder on his local hard drive.
3. Have exim deliver all messages send by this user into a subfolder
in his maildir. To do this, I would add a router which delivers the
email into /path/to/his/Maildir/.Sent/ or similar, with the "unseen"
setting so that it continues on to do a regular delivery as well. It
will pollute your mail logs though.
Personally I would tell him to configure his MUA to do what he wants,
not the mail server, but it's up to you which policy you want to set.
The total budget at all receivers for solving senders' problems is $0.
If you want them to accept your mail and manage it the way you want,
send it the way the spec says to. --John Levine
