Your combination setup and goals are very unusual; the notion that you
are ok with your incoming but not outgoing mail in an IMAP account is
one that I have never encountered before.  Plus, there are plenty of
other reasons, other than Sent-folder paranoia, to use a different
outgoing SMTP server than the IMAP server.  So you should not expect
that the defaults suit you, and instead should go through every single
setting to see if it is what you want.
