[sieve] Question about enclose action defined in RFC 5703

2009-11-14 14:39:54

I have a simple question about the "enclose" action defined in RFC 5703. I am wondering about the rationale behind the following statement in Section 6:

`This action does not affect messages that are forwarded via a "redirect" action.'

The reason I'm asking is that a user requested this functionality for the redirect action (i.e. forwarding as attachment) and I had the impression that "enclose" would provide this. But I turned out to be wrong and I am now wondering why redirect is explicitly excluded from enclose.

I realize that RFC 5703 will not be adjusted anymore and that is also not my goal. I am basically just curious about why this was decided and whether an alternative could be provided by means of a new extension/action.
