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.

       Title           : Support for Sieve in Internet Message Access 
Protocol (IMAP4)
  Sieve defines an email filtering language that can, in principle,
  plug into any point in the processing of an email message.  As
  defined in the base specification, it plugs into mail delivery.  This
  document defines how Sieve can plug into points in the IMAP protocol
  where messages are created or changed, adding the option of user-
  defined or installation-defined filtering (or, with Sieve extensions,
  features such as notifications).

In this update, I've resolved everything from Ned's very old review,
except for one, about ManageSieve.  I've also left one comment of my
own in there.  Look for "[[" to see both, and please help me resolve

Everyone, please review this version.  Ned especially, will you see if
you think this takes care of your issues?

The only one I didn't understand is why envelope tests should
necessarily be banned here.  It's possible that the sever has stored
envelope information with the message, and that Sieve tests on that
envelope information will work normally.  It's true that for messages
that have been APPENDed, there will probably be no envelope
information, so perhaps I just need to add something that says that
envelope tests might not work if there's no applicable envelope
information, and that should cover it.  Yes?
