Syncing an email account, including sent messages

Is it possible to set up a Google Apps email account so that you can check it from both the gmail website and client side mail apps and have everything sync and thread correctly? Particularly the sent messages?

To be more specific, this is a friend with a small business whose main email address is email@example.com, and she and her remote colleague both have to monitor this account. Let's call them A and B.
I've tried to get them both to use only the gmail website for all email activity, but my friend (A) refuses to completely give up her Mail app on various Macs, at least two at work and one at home. She particularly refuses to use the website for sending messages.
You can imagine the problem: a new client inquiry comes in, A responds from her Mail app on her computer, then B (who only uses the gmail website) sees the inquiry but has no way to see whether A has already replied to it.
Is there an IMAP or POP3 configuration that will sync everything back to the server as if it was all done on the gmail website to begin with, from multiple mail clients on multiple computers? (All macs though.)
