The Sieve [SIEVE] language provides a very useful interoperable syntax for mail filtering. The Email Account Dataset Class [ACAP-EMAIL] provides an extensible and interoperable means of accessing and controlling Sieve scripts, but requires an ACAP [ACAP] server. This memo proposes a profile of ACAP which is suitable for accessing Sieve scripts, very easy to implement in clients and servers, and upwardly compatible with ACAP.
