   Support for Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) Events in Sieve

Abstract

   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 IMAP where    messages are created or changed, adding the option of user-defined or    installation-defined filtering (or, with Sieve extensions, features    such as notifications).  Because this requires future Sieve    extensions to specify their interactions with this one, this document    updates the base Sieve specification, RFC 5228.
