sieveshell — remotely manipulate sieve scripts


sieveshell [--user=user] [--authname=authname]  [--realm=realm] [--exec=script] server[:port]

sieveshell --help


sieveshell allows users to manipulate their scripts on a remote server.  It works via MANAGESIEVE, a work in progress.

The following commands are recognized:

list list scripts on server.

put <filename> upload script to server.

get <name> [<filename>] get script. if no filename display to stdout

delete <name> delete script.

activate <name> activate script.

deactivate deactivate all scripts.


-u user, --user=user

The authorization name to request; by default, derived from the authentication credentials.

-a authname, --authname=authname

The user to use for authentication (defaults to current user).

-r realm, --realm=realm

The realm to attempt authentication in.

-e script, --exec=script

Instead of working interactively, run commands from script, and exit when done.
