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.
