Technical Summary
   This document describes the "date" and "index" extensions to the
   Sieve email filtering language.  The "date" extension gives Sieve the

   extension provides a means to limit header and address tests to
   specific instances of header fields when header fields are repeated.

RFC Editor Note

OLD:
"year", "month", "day", "date", "hour", "minute", "second" and
                        ^^^^^^^
"weekday" all use fixed-width string representations of integers,  and
can therefore be compared with "i;octet", "i;ascii-casemap", and
"i;ascii-numeric" with equivalent results.

NEW:
"year", "month", "day", "hour", "minute", "second" and
"weekday" all use fixed-width string representations of integers,  and
can therefore be compared with "i;octet", "i;ascii-casemap", and
"i;ascii-numeric" with equivalent results.
"date" also uses fixed-width string representations of integers,  and
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
can therefore be compared with "i;octet", "i;ascii-casemap", however
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
"i;ascii-numeric" can't be used with it, as "i;ascii-numeric" doesn't
allow
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
for non digit characters.
