I can think of two possible solutions for your consideration - one of them may 
suit, depending on your present situation.

If you filter your POP and IMAP accounts into separate folders you can right-
click on the folder in question, choose Properties, and elect to keep replies 
in the same folder.  The weakness of this is that if you originate a thread 
that message will have to be manually pulled into the folder, but otherwise it 
works fine.

The second solution is to use a separate identity for each account - you may 
already do this?  If you do, choose to Modify the account, and on the Advanced 
tab you can set a custom sent-mail folder - create it under the mail account 
folder if you wish.
