          That is really cool.

       I thought that sieves were easy to implement. All we need to do
is to put up a clean easy to use interface so that even non-technical
users can set up sieve scritps. Also, if it is filters, I need to read
a lot more. If you can give some pointers, i will catch up soon. And
as for sieve, i think we can add up another tab in the filters part
itself and provide it as sieve interface. As sieve has to get executed
in the servers, it the issuse of the mailserver admins to set up sieve
directories and enable sieve options for thier Cyrus or what ever.
