True, but it is my understanding, please correct me if I am wrong, that with
Postfix, the BCC-option forces a copy of the email (regardless of which user
sent it) to be delivered to a single email-address?
This would, at least the way I see it, mean that the filtering only needs to
be done by a single user (the owner of the bcc-email address).
Postfix -> external SMTP-server
BCC to <bcc-user>@mydomain
filtering tool for user "bcc-user"
delivery into senders "sent" folder
sender is determined by checking the "mail-from" header

True, but I tend to, when I at least have a theory, to also answer with my
theory. I hope my reply made it clear that I was not 100% certain? :)
