A quick and easy feature request to this (which I have had as well)
would be implementing a sendmail.fcc config, which if set, would
append any mail messages sent by git send-email to the Unix
mbox file specified by sendmail.fcc.

Once you have the message id of any patch mail that you've sent...

This becomes pretty easy to solve using existing tooling.  For people
who like web interfaces:

    https://lore.kernel.org/r/<message-id>

(This works today because git@vger.kernel.org is archived by the
lore.kernel.org public-inbox archive.)

Or for those who like CLI's and/or text-based mail readers such as
mutt or pine:

   b4 mbox -o /tmp <message-id>

This will dump the full mail thread (given any any message-id in that
mail thread) to /tmp/<messaige-id>.mbx in Unix mbox format, again
relying on lore.kernel.org.  I've found this to be especially handy if
I've been cc'ed part-way through a mail thread, or if I was only cc'ed
on a single patch and I want to see the full patch series for context.

Cheers,
