A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Sieve Mail Filtering Language Working Group of 
the IETF.

The Sieve scripting language can be used to implement whitelisting,
blacklisting, personal distribution lists, and other sorts of list
matching.  Currently, this requires that all members of such lists be
hardcoded in the script itself.  Whenever a member of a list is added
or deleted, the script needs to be updated and possibly uploaded to a
mail server.

This document defines a Sieve extension for accessing externally
stored lists -- lists whose members are stored externally to the
script, such as using LDAP (RFC 4510), ACAP (RFC 2244), or relational


o  Should we add a mandatory-to-implement tag?  Ned suggests (and I

agree) that it might be good to add a registry of well-defined

strings that can be used instead of URIs, and define the initial

string "ab" to represent the user's personal address book.

o  Do we want to have the :list test set variables?  See Ned's

comments in the text.
