sieveshell --help


sieveshell allows users to manipulate their scripts on a remote server. It works via MANAGESIEVE, a work in progress.
The following commands are recognized:
list list scripts on server.
put <filename> upload script to server.
get <name> [<filename>] get script. if no filename display to stdout
delete <name> delete script.
activate <name> activate script.
deactivate deactivate all scripts.


-u user, --user=user
The authorization name to request; by default, derived from the authentication credentials.
-a authname, --authname=authname
The user to use for authentication (defaults to current user).
-r realm, --realm=realm
The realm to attempt authentication in.
-p password, --password=password
The password to use when authenticating to server. Note that this parameter can be seen in the process list. Use with caution!
-e script, --exec=script
Instead of working interactively, run commands from script, and exit when done.
-f file, --execfile=file
Instead of working interactively, run commands from file file and exit when done.
