Situation ....

There are two PCs set to pop (leave copy on server) (they are at difficult to get to locations)

Two PCs set to imap.

The pop pcs wont leave a copy of what they sent on the imap. Im aware that may be the case?  

Aside from that - any other problems?

This should work fine as it is set up client by client and none of the clients affect how the actual account is set up. As you said, there will be one-way syncronization of incoming mail to the POP clients which will leave you without any sent messages on the server from the POP clients. You also won't be able to synchronize deleted emails from the POP clients nor will the server reflect any moves to a folder, etc. These are all simple issues as long as the end-user is aware of them.

One tip I've found useful for recording sent email is to use the BCC field and include myself as a BCC recipient, so that the sent email gets propagated to any client I happen to be using - tablet, PC, phone, webmail, etc.
