Pigeonhole Sieve: Editheader Extension

The editheader extension (RFC5293) enables Sieve scripts to delete and add message header fields, thereby allowing interaction with other components that consume or produce header fields.

Configuration

The editheader extension is not available by default and needs to be enabled explicitly by adding it to the sieve_extensions setting.

The following settings can be configured for the editheader extension (default values are indicated):

sieve_editheader_max_header_size = 2048

The maximum size in bytes of a header field value passed to the addheader command. The minimum value for this setting is 1024 bytes. The value is in bytes, unless followed by a k(ilo).

sieve_editheader_forbid_add =

A space-separated list of headers that cannot be added to the message header. Addition of the Subject: header cannot be prohibited, as required by the RFC specification. Therefore, adding this header to this setting has no effect.

sieve_editheader_forbid_delete =

A space-separated list of headers that cannot be deleted from the message header. Deleting the Received: and Auto-Submitted: fields is always forbidden, while removing the Subject: header cannot be prohibited, as required by the RFC specification. Therefore, adding one of these headers to this setting has no effect.

sieve_editheader_protected =

A space-separated list of headers that cannot be added to or deleted from the message header. This setting is provided for backwards compatibility. It is a combination of the sieve_editheader_forbid_add and sieve_editheader_forbid_delete settings. The same limitations apply.

Invalid values for the settings above will make the Sieve interpreter log a warning and revert to the default values.

Example

plugin {
  # Use editheader
  sieve_extensions = +editheader

  # Header fiels must not exceed one kilobyte
  sieve_editheader_max_header_size = 1k

  # Protected special headers
  sieve_editheader_forbid_add = X-Verified
  sieve_editheader_forbid_delete = X-Verified X-Seen
}
