Dear Lazyweb: Running a new sieve against an old mail folder?
Dear Lazyweb.

I have a remote IMAP mailbox full of read messages.
I have a Sieve script.

I want to run that sieve script against the contents of that remote mailbox, and refile all those messages into different mailboxes.

This IMAP server can sieve new incoming messages, but how do I run a new sieve against already filed old messages?

Download all the e-mails from IMAP, delete them from server. Use another script to feed them back into your mail server via SMTP. Let them redeliver and be subsequently sieved.
