This is not a programmatic/browser-only answer, as I believe any method that doesn't rely on ANY installed software could only be accomplished by building a Gmail add-on, a nontrivial task. But if you have Outlook for Desktop, you could set up a fairly simple Google Script to autoforward all threads under a certain label to a secondary email in your Outlook, ...
While Gmail has no direct "select place to store Sent messages" or "CC yourself" option, the effect can be achieved with filter rules.
This is done by creating a filter for the search term from:me, applying the "never send it to spam" option.
Since it is a workaround, depending on an unexpected side-effect of "Never mark ...
Shortly after I posted my question, I found the solution in point number 4 on the answer on this page:
Hi Stacey, there are four places that the Inbox label can be removed.

using IMAP, archiving messages in that device will remove them from
After some experimenting,...
Remove the IMAP folder size limit within Gmail
In a web browser navigate to Gmail > Settings > Forwarding and POP-IMAP (link to the tab)
In the 'IMAP Access' section look for the heading "Folder Size Limits" and select 'Do not limit the number of messages in an IMAP folder'
Review the Email Logs
The email logs for the offending message(s) will provide insight. They are found in Reporting > Email Log Search (admin.google.com/u/0/ac/emaillogsearch)
In the details you will see info such as 'Matched rules'.
Check Additional Places for Custom Delivery Rules
In the Google Admin navigate to Apps > Google Workspace > Gmail
If your messages were archived or deleted they will no longer show in the Inbox.
Where did they go?
They can be found in the All Mail folder: mail.google.com/#all
They can be found in the Trash folder: mail.google.com/#trash
How to Return them?
In both cases, select any affected messages and then click the Move to Inbox button
1. Password Reset
This is a good method however any devices, applications, or services logged in using your Google password will need to have the password updated in order for them to regain access.

There are a different ways to address this and they all benefit from insight into your problem space.
e.g. The reasons you are choosing POP over IMAP at all. Synchronizing mail across devices (your problem) is one of IMAP's differentiating features over IMAP. Lose your laptop, spin up a new laptop, connect via IMAP, voilà, all items in your sent items inbox,...
Try this (if you haven't done so already):
I found a solution that worked for me was to edit the contact, deleting the address you don't want on this list. Then save the contact, reopen and add the previously deleted email address. The formerly second-listed address will now be the first listed address and hence the default email address for any labels/groups the person is part of. But that will be ...
A recipient email address has the email address but the sender can set a 'display name' that is different from the email address. How this is handled varies by email client. Some will use the email address itself, some will display a text string in addition to the email address, others will display a text string only. Traditionally most full featured ...
The domain alias is not the problem.
With Google the user account alias is the problem.
How Google choose to DKIM sign or not
