has this ever happened?


Hi Ron,

I asked about this and did some investigation on its support in other
mail clients.  See below:

I just got Sieve working with Horde (Ingo module) and it is great.  Only
thing I'm not sure about is if there is a way to apply Sieve filters to
already delivered mail - maybe you know an answer to that?


Just found this by accident - more support for the Evolution Sieve
support argument :-)

The sieve mail filtering language specified in RFC 3028 has now been
implemented in a wide variety of user agents (UAs), mail delivery 
agents (MDAs), and mail transfer agents (MTAs). Several extensions have
been specified (RFCs 3431, 3598, 3685, 3894) and have also been widely
implemented. Several additional sieve extensions have been defined in
various internet-drafts.



Another reason to implement Sieve support in Evolution -  Zimbra uses
Sieve to store its mail filters.  I have logged a feature request for
the Zimbra Evolution connector here:

but it probably requires server side filtering to be implemented in
Evolution.  The bug for that is here:


Thunderbird has Sieve support ...

Zimbra uses Sieve - Zimbra passed 6 Million mailboxes over a year
ago ...
