Thunderbird is the only one. I have successfully used GNUMail.app and
Horde and IMP (webmail application running on the server) and neither
has a problem saving sent mail.
I have done lots of searching on this particular topic. All of the
advice that I have seen relates to lowering the number of connections
that Thunderbird asks for. Since that did not work in my case, I
thought the cause could be server related.
I am anxious for Sarge to go stable since it has cyrus21, which
will hopefully be easier to work with. (The older version of
cyrus in Woody was a royal pain as it is out of date and there
is almost no documentation for it on the web.)

Sorry you got misdirected. The Thunderbird connection limit appears to
be limited to Courier-IMAP as it enforces a limit in connections per IP
as a DOS defence.
Have you looked through the bugs at Mozilla.org? (It can be a chore
between duplicates and odd descriptions)
Are you also running an older version of Thunderbird? If so, you should
upgrade to the 1.0 release.
Thunderbird v.old & Cyrus v.very_old has a good chance of very weird
I understand your pain on the aging infrastructure of Woody. We moved
our email infrastructure off Debian - made the decision our servers we
were going to stay on a 'supported/stable' platform and with the
increased risks from viruses & spam couldn't keep email that far in the
past. (Yes we know that Debian 'testing' is 'more stable' than many
other distros, but it is 'testing' & I'm not signing up for an unknown
update treadmill in production)
