This document describes how IMAP CONVERT can be used within Sieve to
transform messages before final delivery.
Working Group Summary
This extension started as an individual submission in 2008 and was
adopted as a WG document in 2010. The basic premise has remained the
same throughout all revisions of the document.
This extension adds a new combined action and test to SIEVE to allow
message parts to be converted to other types during delivery. One new
behavior here is that this extension creates a new combined test and
action. This is something new for SIEVE (though allowed by the base
spec), and implementors were explicitly asked to comment on whether this
approach was viable - with a positive response. The document has not
received any reviews from non-WG members. However, many of the existing
WG members had participated in the Lemonade WG IMAP CONVERT work, on
which the SIEVE convert extension is heavily based, so from that
standpoint we do have review from existing IMAP implementors.
There are no known implementations of this extension at present. Various
vendors have expressed interest in implementing this extension, however
it is not currently a top priority for any of them.
