TIMSIEVED(8) Cyrus IMAP TIMSIEVED(8)

NAME

timsieved - Cyrus IMAP documentation

CMU hack for getting sieve scripts onto the server

SYNOPSIS

timsieved [ -C config-file ]

DESCRIPTION

timsieved is a server that allows users to remotely manage their sieve scripts kept on the server. It accepts commands on its standard input and responds on its standard output. It MUST be invoked by master(8) with those descriptors attached to a remote client connection.

Cyrus admins who authenticate and authorize as themselves (e.g. don’t proxy) manage global scripts.

timsieved reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C.

OPTIONS

Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the default imapd.conf(5).

EXAMPLES

timsieved is commonly included in the SERVICES section of cyrus.conf(5) like so:

SERVICES {

imap cmd="imapd -U 30" listen="imap" prefork=0
imaps cmd="imapd -s -U 30" listen="imaps" prefork=0 maxchild=100
