The Sieve email filtering language can be used to implement email
whitelisting, blacklisting, personal distribution lists, and other
sorts of list matching.  Currently, this requires that all members of
such lists be hard-coded in the script itself.  Whenever a member of
a list is added or deleted, the script needs to be updated and
possibly uploaded to a mail server.

This document defines a Sieve extension for accessing externally
stored lists -- lists whose members are stored externally to the
script, such as using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP), the Application Configuration Access Protocol (ACAP), vCard
Extensions to WebDAV (CardDAV), or relational databases.  

This document is a product of the Sieve Mail Filtering Language Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
