I actually think the use case calls for sieve or something in the mail
server, but I note that my sent mail is

    set record="=sent-mail-`date +%Y-%m`"

which at least puts it in the right place when mutt is doing an
action.  Maybe there is a similar hack that could be done with some
sort of keybinding or on-exit call?
