[Homestead] OT: Thunderbird and Gmail Problem - Follow-Up Issue

All has been going swimmingly well, using T-bird. It is collecting my
received emails from my online account and deleting the online copies.
That part is going perfectly.
But I have one, small, nagging problem. I cannot for the life of me
figure out how to get Gmail to stop hording my sent mails, which I am
sending using T-bird. I have to go into the online account and delete
them. That somewhat defeats one of the purposes of using T-bird:
security of information. I want to avoid storing emails on-line. I've
used other on-line email services which allow one to disable storing a
copy of sent emails. But if Gmail allows for the disabling of saving
copies of sent emails, they have hidden the feature fairly well. Does
anyone know a way to stop the automatic online storage of sent emails?
I'm beginning to understand why privacy advocates hate Google. Google
seems to want to store all info on every person from around the world
(and such a database would be very valuable, I'm sure). I suppose that
may be one reason Google promotes IMAP over POP - with IMAP they get to
keep copies of everything.
