Pigeonhole Sieve support


The Pigeonhole project provides mail filtering facilities at time of final message delivery using the Sieve (RFC 5228) language. By writing Sieve scripts, users can customize how messages are delivered, e.g. whether they are forwarded or stored in special folders. The Sieve language is meant to be simple, extensible and system independent. And, unlike most other mail filtering script languages, it does not allow users to execute arbitrary programs. This is particularly useful to prevent virtual users from having full access to the mail store. The intention of the language is to make it impossible for users to do anything more complex (and dangerous) than write simple mail filters. See Sieve wiki for more comprehensive information about the Sieve language itself.
