Dovecot ManageSieve Server

ManageSieve service is used to manage a user's 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 from the Pigeonhole project. There exists also an alternative pysieved ManageSieve server that works with Dovecot.
