The SPECIAL-USE capability of the IMAP protocol (RFC 6154) allows
clients to identify special-use mailboxes; e.g., where draft or sent
messages should be put. This simplifies client configuration. In
contrast, the Sieve mail filtering language (RFC 5228) currently has
no such capability. This memo defines a Sieve extension that fills
this gap: it adds a test for checking whether a special-use attribute
is assigned for a particular mailbox or any mailbox, and it adds the
ability to file messages into an anonymous mailbox that has a
particular special-use attribute assigned.
