The SIEVE email filtering language is specified in RFC 5228, together with a number of extensions. The SIEVE working group is being re-chartered to: (1) Finish work on existing in-progress Working Group documents: (a) External lists (draft-ietf-sieve-external-lists) (b) Notify SIP (draft-ietf-sieve-notify-sip-message) (c) RegEx (draft-ietf-sieve-regex) (d) Include/multi-script (draft-ietf-sieve-include) (e) Sieve in IMAP (draft-ietf-sieve-imap-sieve) (2) Finalize and publish the following SIEVE extensions as proposed standards: (a) General Auto-reply (draft-george-sieve-autoreply) (b) Notify presence (draft-george-sieve-notify-presence) (c) Vacation time (draft-george-sieve-vacation-time) (d) Convert messages (draft-melnikov-sieve-convert) Additional drafts may be added to this list, but only via a charter revision. There must also be demonstrable willingness in the SIEVE development community to actually implement a given extension before it can be added to this charter. (3) Work on a specification for iCalendar and vCard extraction, and cooperate with the VCARDDAV WG for address book tests in Sieve. (4) Work on a specification to describe how EAI/IDN issues should be handled in SIEVE. (5) Work on a "Benefits of SIEVE" guide for client and server vendors that: (a) Describes the SIEVE protocol and its suite of extensions. (b) Explains the benefits of server-side filtering in practical terms. (c) Shows how client-side filtering can be migrated to SIEVE. (6) Produce one or more informational RFCs containing a set of test scripts and test email messages that are to be filtered by the scripts, and the expected results of that filtering. This will serve as the basis of a interoperability test suite to help determine the suitability of moving the base specification and selected extensions to Draft status.
