Does the stock Cyrus imapd that comes with Debian recognize sieve scripts?
I looked at the name page for imapd.conf and there was no info. about sieve
or how to get imapd to process the scripts. Can anyone explain to me how
sieve is invoked by the Squirrelmail plugin? Also, do I need to get the
sieve that comes included in the gnu mailutils package? The Cyrus imapd
package description mentions support for sieve, yet makes no references on
how to get it working nor is there a dependancy suggestion in the package
manager for anything sieve related! Thanks for you help.

With SquirrelMail 1.3.3 CVS and the modificated plugin avelsieve I managed
to get sieve scripts working. The avelsieve plugins with the mods (Also
send to Alexandros Vellis) can be downloaded from

Subject: Squirrel, Debian Woody, filtering with procmail or sieve
Hi, I tried out squirrel mail and think its great! My problem is that I am
running Debian and the support for Cyrus-IMAP and mail filtering software is
terrible! I cannot get Cyrus to work with procmail for my users. Has
anyone sucessfully gotten Squirrelmail working under Debian Woody AND
managed to get user level ail filters working with procmail (or even sieve)?
I am really nashing my teeth over this one.

No. You need to get the cyrus21 packages, not cyrus. (cyrus21-common,
cyrus21-imapd, etc) There are backported packages of cyrus21 available
for Woody, I believe, but you'll have to search the debian-users archive
for the URL.

If a Sieve script is present and active, Cyrus will apply it as the
message arrives from SMTP.

The SquirrelMail plugin does not perform the filtering, it merely allows
you to create Sieve scripts with a wizard-like interface and then upload
them to your server.
Hope this helps.
