Sieve scripts allow users to filter incoming email.  Message stores
are commonly sealed servers so users cannot log into them, yet users
must be able to update their scripts on them.  This document describes
a protocol "ManageSieve" for securely managing Sieve scripts on a
remote server.  This protocol allows a user to have multiple scripts,
and also alerts a user to syntactically flawed scripts.  [STANDARDS
