If you want sent mails you've sent with your univerity's address to show
up there in sent-mail or somewhere else, have a look at the `gcc-self'
group parameter.  You can set it either to some fixed group (like
nnimap+Uni:sent-mail), but there's more flexibility.  For example, all
my sent mails go into the groups where I replied from or started writing
in.  So my mail conversations look exactly like newsgroup threads
(except for mailing lists, where the sent mails go into a the
corresponding account's sent-mail folder).
