Re: Mail Filtering with cyrus-imapd

Assuming that your cyrus imapd has sieve support, you do it with sieve.
Ask google about mail filtering with sieve for more info. Here is an
excerpt from my .sieve file:

 require "fileinto";
 require "envelope";
 require "vacation";

 #vacation "I am on vacation and will return on July 13";

 if header :contains "subject" "[netsaint]" {
        fileinto "INBOX.Netsaint";
 } elsif header :contains "subject" "[Galeon-user]" {
        fileinto "INBOX.Galeon";
 } elsif address :all :contains ["To","Cc","Bcc"] "debian-user" {
        fileinto "INBOX.Debian";
 } elsif not
    address :all :contains ["To","Cc","Bcc"] "dave@rudedog.org" {
        fileinto "INBOX.Spam";

Sieve is not as powerful as procmail, but if you have a closed box,
giving your users procmail will quickly open the box.
