There's currently no built-in way to handle this in modest; the reason
for the minimalism is that features tend to confuse many users (e-mail
setup is hard!). But obviously, that's not always the right choice for
users who know what they are doing...

What you *could* do (admittedly, a hack) is to get yourself a
pop-account somewhere that does not receive any messages, and use that
for the 'send-only' account.

Best wishes,
