Seeing as many on this list are in the process of migrating their mailsystems 
not only to dovecot's IMAP/POP3 server but also using dovecot's deliver for 
delivering e-mail into users' folders I thought that it might be a good idea 
to share with you the perl script I've been labouring upon for the last few 
days which will translate a simple(ish) procmail recipe to an equivalent 
Dovecot-Sieve script. (It handles vacation pipes as well, by the way.)

It may even be useful as a basis for a more fully featured translator, who 
knows. Whatever, if it could be put on the Wiki no doubt it will prevent the 
wheel being re-invented time and again.

The script can be found at the following URL:


It might be worth putting it in a contrib directory in the dovecot-sieve
