OPTIONS

-v name
View script with the given name. The script if retrieved successfully is output to standard output.

-l
List all of the scripts currently on the server. If one of the scripts is active a arrow is printed indicating that it is the active script.

-p port
Port to connect to. If left off this defaults to sieve as defined in /etc/services.

-i file
Install a file onto the server. If a script with the same name already exists on the server it is overwritten. Upon successfully putting the script on the server the script is set active. If file has the extension .script it is chopped when put on the server since sieve names may not contain a '.'.

-a name
Set name as the active script. The list of available names can be obtained from the -l option.

-d name
Delete the sieve script on the server with name.

-m mechanism
Force installsieve to use mechanism for authentication. If not specified the strongest authentication mechanism supported by the server is chosen. Specify login to use the LOGIN command instead of AUTHENTICATE.

-g name
Get the sieve script with name and save it to disk with a ".script" extension. If a file with that name already exists it is overwritten.

-u userid
Userid/Authname to use for authentication; by default, the current user.
