Other mail-providers surely have similar options. Maybe they won't
keep sent mails forever, but you should be able to copy them from your
"sent" folder to your "archive" or something similar.
Or just add your own account into bcc of every mail. That way you also
have a record of every mail that was sent.
Or, as suggested here: Write a small patch that writes a logfile of
the sent mail. Writing the logging is very easy (just add
"print"-statements to the python-code that sends the mails) - adding a
UI control for it is a little bit more complicated.
