OK...  Here's the deal...

For sent mail, where does the message originate?   On the local
computer.  Since IMAP does not do mail transfer (act as an MTA), the
sent mail can indeed be stored on the local computer.

Yup.  Where does the mail reside?  On the server (for IMAP - unless
you're offline...)  So the TRASH bin should be on the server also.
