I use this simple recipe for archiving all my outgoing emails and
news-articles in nnml+archive:{news,mail}-{year} in Gnus:

  ; Define nnml+archive: for archiving emails and news in ~/Mail/archive:
  (setq gnus-message-archive-method '(nnml "archive"
                                           (nnml-directory "~/Mail/archive")
                                           (nnml-get-new-mail nil)
                                           (nnml-inhibit-expiry t)))

  ; Tell Gnus to archive outgoing articles/emails automatically:
  (setq gnus-message-archive-group
        '((if (message-news-p)
              (concat "news-" (format-time-string "%Y"))
            (concat "mail-" (format-time-string "%Y")))))

  ; Mark gcc'ed (archive) as read:
  (setq gnus-gcc-mark-as-read t)

(This works for me in Gnus: automatic saving, deletion when sending.)
