The OBJECTID capability of IMAP (RFC 8474) allows clients to identify
mailboxes by a unique identifier that survives renaming.

This document extends the Sieve email filtering language (RFC 5228)
to allow using that same unique identifier as a target for fileinto
rules and for testing the existence of mailboxes.

This document is a product of the Email mailstore and eXtensions To Revise or Amend Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
