It depends on whether you are using POP or IMAP.

If he/you all are using POP, then this won't help you.

But if you are accessing your email via IMAP, then it will depend on the 
client. I honestly don't know what, if any, clients support it and/or to 
what extent, but I don't think Thunderbird supports it...

One thing that Timo has talked about is the possibility of something 
like a submission service, so that at least, when sending messages, 
assuming that you 'save a copy of all sent mail to the Sent folder', it 
doesn't have to upload it twice (once for sending, then again for 
copying to the Sent folder), but I have no idea if that feature could 
also be leveraged to provide the functionality you are wanting WITHOUT 
client-side support.
