Dunno about the thread view question, but for (2).

Under "Edit"->"Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings..."; select "Copies 
and Folders" under the mail account you want to change.  Then, under 
"When Sending Messages Automatically..." in the dialog, make sure "Place 
a copy in" is checked, and then select the folder you want the copy to 
go into.  I don't believe you can tell it to put a copy in the current 
folder; all copies go into only one folder.  But, you should be able to 
get it to put a copy in any folder on your IMAP server..
