I do a bit of 1,2, and 3.
Using IMAP is the key to flexibility. POP is dead... or should be.
My primary machine I use at work has Thunderbird installed (IMAP of
course). When I am away from my primary machine I can use Webmail
(http://roundcube.net). When I am not at a GUI, I always have SSH/Mutt.
Almost every client I have tried saves sent mail on the server. Some
pick different names for folders (Sent, sent-mail, etc). But that is
almost always configurable.
