Thanks for testing! However, the sending issue most likely isn't session

I've not committed the patch to git master. Please note that some cleanup
jobs within Roundcube are tied to the session garbage collector calls which
do not happen when using the native php session save handler. Thus you
should call bin/gc.sh periodically with a cron job.

I hope this finally adds the amount of flexibility you're requesting.
