Sieve [RFC5228] is a language for filtering email messages at or around the time of final delivery. It is designed to be implementable on either a mail client or mail server. It is suitable for running on a mail server where users may not be allowed to execute arbitrary programs, such as on black box Internet Message Access Protocol [RFC3501] servers, as it has no user-controlled loops or the ability to run external programs.

   This document describes the "envelope-dsn", "redirect-dsn",    "envelope-deliverby", and "redirect-deliverby" extensions to the    Sieve email filtering language.  The "envelope-dsn" and "envelope-    deliverby" extensions provide access to additional envelope    information provided by the delivery status notification (DSN) and    Deliver-By SMTP extensions, respectively.  The "redirect-dsn" and    "redirect-deliverby" extensions extend Sieve's redirect action to    provide control over delivery status notification and Deliver-By    parameters, respectively.
