Thank you for the pointer.  I had located a much earlier thread in the 
archives, but now I located this thread:


For others looking for this information in the future, it looks like the 
managesieve patch was written primarily by Stephan Bosch.  There are also 
many other useful posts on it by John Peacock, who appears to have done 
extensive testing, and kept it up to date through at least 

Hopefully this can get integrated into dovecot-sieve-1.1, now that 
dovecot-sieve has been tagged dovecot-sieve-1.0.

Thanks for an excellent POP/IMAP server.  I've happily converted all my 
production servers and have converted several other members of the 
Squirrelmail core development team.  A managesieve interface seems like 
the last major missing feature to a category-leadiug server
