= Dovecot ManageSieve Server =
ManageSieve service is used to manage a user's [[LDA/Sieve|Sieve]] script collection. It has the following advantages over doing it directly via filesystem:

 * No need to let users log in via FTP/SFTP/etc, which could be difficult especially with virtual users.
 * ManageSieve is a [[|standard protocol]], so users can manage their scripts using (hopefully) user-friendly ManageSieve clients. Many webmails already include a ManageSieve client.
 * Scripts are compiled before they are installed, which guarantees that the uploaded script is valid. This prevents a user from inadvertently installing a broken Sieve script.

Dovecot's ManageSieve support is distributed in a separate package. Currently it also requires patching Dovecot sources, but this won't be necessary anymore in Dovecot v2.0. Dovecot's ManageSieve implementation is part of the [[|Pigeonhole project]]. There exists also an alternative [[|pysieved]] ManageSieve server that works with Dovecot.
