Technical Summary
    The SIEVE mail filtering language [SIEVE] "spamtest" and "virustest"
    extensions permit users to use simple, portable commands for spam
    and virus tests on email messages.  Each extension provides a new
    test using matches against numeric 'scores'.  It is the
    responsibility of the underlying SIEVE implementation to do the
    actual checks that result in values returned by the tests.
Working Group Summary
    This document was developed and reviewed on the

RFC Editor note

Title needs to be changed to
 "SIEVE Email Filtering: Spamtest and VirusTest Extensions"
There's a bracket out of alignment in the example in section 3.3
Section 3.3 again: "definately" -> "definitely"
