3 Managing Sieve

Manage Sieve is a special mode used to display Sieve scripts available on a remote server. It can be invoked with M-x sieve-manage RET, which queries the user for a server and if necessary, user credentials to use.

When a server has been successfully contacted, the Manage Sieve buffer looks something like:

     Server  : mailserver:sieve
     
     2 scripts on server, press RET on a script name edits it, or
     press RET on <new script> to create a new script.
             <new script>
      ACTIVE .sieve
             template.siv

One of the scripts are highlighted, and standard point navigation commands (<up>, <down> etc.) can be used to navigate the list.

The following commands are available in the Manage Sieve buffer:

m
Activates the currently highlighted script.
u
Deactivates the currently highlighted script.
C-M-?
Deactivates all scripts.
r
Remove currently highlighted script.
RET
mouse-2
f

o

q
