Technical Summary The sieve scripting language allows users to control handling and disposal of their incoming e-mail. By default, an e-mail message that is processed by a sieve script is saved in the owner's "inbox". Actions such as "fileinto" and "redirect" cancel this default behavior. This document defines a new keyword parameter, ":copy", to be used with the sieve "fileinto" and "redirect" actions. Adding ":copy" to an action suppresses cancellation of the default "inbox" save. It allows users to add commands to an existing script without changing the meaning of the rest of the script. Working Group Summary This document was reviewed on the email@example.com list but is not the product of an IETF working group. Protocol Quality Ned Freed and Scott Hollenbeck reviewed the specification for the IESG.
