1.2. Conventions used in this document 1.2. Differences Between IMAP Events and Mail Delivery
Invoking Sieve scripts in a context other than initial mail delivery
introduces new situations, which changes the applicability of Sieve
features and creates implementation challenges and user interface
issues. This section discusses some of those differences,
challenges, and issues.
At times other than message delivery, delivery "envelope"
information, might not be available. With messages added through
IMAP APPEND, there might be no way to even guess who the intended
recipient is, and no concept of who "sent" the message. Sieve
actions that relate to contacting the sender, for example, will not
be applicable.
Because IMAP events will often be triggered by user actions, and
because user interfaces allow bulk actions that differ from
individual message arrival, it now becomes possible for a single user
action, such as drag-and-drop, to initiate Sieve script processing on
a large number of messages at once. Implementations will have to
deal with such situations as a "COPY" action or flag changes on
dozens, or even thousands of messages.
Other issues might surface as this extension is deployed and
experience with it develops.

Stephan Bosch: 6) Allowing redirect seems risky. What if I
accidently 'drag' in my mailclient the content of some enormous
mailing list mailbox to a Sieve-enabled mailbox with a redirect?
Shouldn't this at least be bounded somehow?
Barry: I don't know if we can specify what to do -- I don't know
if we KNOW what to do -- but I've incorporated this into my answer
to (7), below.
Stephan Bosch: 7) Since this document essentially defines a whole new
context in which Sieve scripts can be executed, it can be helpful for
the reader to have an introductory section that outlines and
summarizes the main differences between the new and the familiar
context, e.g. things like the lack of an envelope as pointed out
earlier on this list, the undesirability of sending responses back to
senders, etc.
Barry: I've added a section to the introduction, "Differences
Between IMAP Events and Mail Delivery". Please review it, and see
if there's stuff to add.
To Do: "Interaction with Metadata": Add text requiring ManageSieve,
and giving ManageSieve URI in IMAP capability.

[[COMMENT FROM NED: But the real question is why should we limit
ourselves this way? Why not make the contents of "/IMAPSieve/Script"
a URL? (The metadata: prefix can then be defined as a URL.) If we
want to reach into ManageSieve, use a sieve: URL. (I do see a big
problem with this currently - RFC 5804 appears to have badly botched
the specification of sieve: URLs - the authority field is mandatory
when it shouldn't be, and the owner field is encoded into the URL
path when it should have been extracted from the authority field if
it is present. The way it's done now, you cannot write
sieve:///scriptname and have it mean what it should mean: Select out
of the mailbox owner's scripts. -------- Now, there is no doubt that
allowing URLs creates additional concerns, mostly security related.
But we've dealt with this sort of thing before, e.g., in BURL. All
we have to say is that metadata:foo MUST be implemented and sieve:bar
(modulo some fixes to RFC 5804) SHOULD work if ManageSieve is
available. -------- If this goes too far, then at a minimum I believe
this section needs to be more explicit about how, if ManageSieve is
used, the mapping from script collections in ManageSieve to a mailbox
works.]]

this extension.
4.1. New Sieve Environment Items: imapuser and imapemail 4. Interaction With Sieve Environment
4.1. Base Sieve Environment Items: location and phase
The Sieve Environment extension defines a set of standard environment
items (see [RFC5183], Section 4.1). Two of those items are affected
when the script is invoked through an IMAP event.
The value of "location" is set to "MS" -- evaluation is being
performed by a Message Store.
The value of "phase" is set to "post" -- processing is taking place
after (or perhaps instead of, in the case of APPEND) final delivery.
4.2. New Sieve Environment Items: imapuser and imapemail
In the normal case, when Sieve is used in final delivery, there is no In the normal case, when Sieve is used in final delivery, there is no

4.2. New Sieve Environment Item: cause 4.3. New Sieve Environment Item: cause
Implementations MAY invoke different Sieve scripts for the different
conditions described in this document (append, copy, flag changes).
If the actions to be taken are common, and the implementation

Future extensions might define new events and, thus, new causes.
Such extensions will come with their own capability strings, and the
events they define will only be presented when their capabilities are
requested. Scripts that do not request those capabilities will not
see those events, and will not encounter the new cause strings.

This extension does not affect the operation of tests or comparisons Any tests against message envelope information, including the

test defined in extensions, are either inapplicable or have serious
interoperability issues when performed at other than final-delivery
