Summary0001111: Sieve filter - Can't file into folder with special characters

This bug happen with Cyrus-IMAP. If I choose the "file into" action with a folder with special characters, Cyrus reports a "Mailbox does not exist" when the filter matches.

cyrus/lmtp[26582]: sieve runtime error for sogo1 id <60c9-4d441400-13-7b950e80@158797587>: Fileinto: Mailbox does not exist

In this example, the script was :

if anyof (address :contains ["to", "cc"] "") {
fileinto "BoƮte";

while it should be :

if anyof (address :contains ["to", "cc"] "") {
fileinto "Bo&AO4-te";

TagsNo tags attached.

That is wrong. Sieve filters must use UTF-8. It's the filtering daemon that should perform the proper conversion. Reference: rfc3028

See this thread:

Cyrus requires folder to be in mUTF-7.
Dovecot requires folder to be in UTF-8.

Cyrus has an option:

sieve_utf8fileinto: 0

If enabled, the sieve engine expects folder names for the fileinto action in scripts to use UTF8 encoding. Otherwise, modified UTF7 encoding should be used.

Good to know.

This Cyrus parameter has been introduced in version 2.3.13.
