The sieve draft I posted (except for some really trivial changes) has gone
out as an Internet-Draft.

       Title     : SIEVE: A Mail Filtering Language                        
       Author(s) : T. Showalter

This document describes a mail filtering language for filtering messages at
time of final delivery.  It is designed to be independent of protocol, and 
implementable on either a mail client or mail server which uses multiple 
folders.  It is meant to be extensible, simple, and independent of access 
protocol, mail architecture, and operating systems used to implement it.   

Mail filtering systems are widely used for a variety of reasons, including 
organization of messages (filtering out mailing list messages for separate 
reading).  They are becoming increasingly useful in avoiding unsolicited 
mail.  Existing languages are not consistant across client, server, or 
operating system, and are frequently difficult for users to use.  This 
language is not tied to any particular system or mail architecture and is 
suitable for running on a mail server where users may not be allowed to 
execute arbitrary programs, such as on black box IMAP servers.             

Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP.  Login with the username
"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address.  After logging in,
type "cd internet-drafts" and then
     "get draft-showalter-sieve-00.txt".

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.     
Send a message to:  mailserv(_at_)ds(_dot_)internic(_dot_)net(_dot_) In the 
body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-showalter-sieve-00.txt".
NOTE: The mail server at can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
