Re: Cyrus / Sieve

If you use cyrus21 from debian with pam as authentication it's
a fast and easy installation - thanks to Henrique de Moraes Holschuh!
We're using a backport to stable without problems.

For sorting email between your subfolders or managing spam by scores etc.
SIEVE is unbeatable and undepended of your client.

But I don't know about a client to manipulate your personal script.
I've written a short perl script for it. Use 'Cyrus::SIEVE::managesieve' in your script
and be happy about immediate syntax checking after a 'sieve_put_file_withdest()'.


PS: Can't imagine how it was possible to live without SIEVE. :)
