that would make dovecot to a MTA, but how do you explain this the MUA aka mail-client?
gmail can do it because it is a webinterface not acting with mail-protocols on the
user side

with standard protocols this is not the way you can go

even if dovecot would have it's own SMTP implementation
no client expects such non-standard things

as other example: dbmail could easily move messages to different
folders becasue it only has to update one reference but you
can't do it this way with IMAP
