Chris Newman has reviewed the ManageSieve document and sent me the
following comment on Sieve URLs that point to scripts:
sieveurl-script = "sieve://" [ authority ] "/" scriptname
* IMAP URLs made the mistake of confusing the identity used to
authenticate with the identity that owns the script. This makes IMAP
URLs cumbersome. I would strongly encourage a naming model that
separates the two and keeps the script owner explicit. For example:
sieveurl-script = "sieve://" [ authority ] "/" owner "/" scriptname
I agree with Chris, however I am concerned that there are existing
applications using <sieveurl-script> form of Sieve URLs.
So I would like to hear from people:
1). opinions on whether you think this change is a good or a bad idea
2). if you know of any application using existing <sieveurl-script> form
(with no "owner").
