DBMail stores Sieve scripts in a table in the DBMail database. These scripts are used to sort incoming mail for the email users. Each user has their own script space and may upload scripts to the dbmail-timsieved(8) daemon. The dbmail-sievecmd(8) utility provides a convenient method for the system administrator to work with Sieve scripts from the command line.

Print out the named script. If no script is given, the active script is printed.
Edit the named script. If no script is given, the active script is printed. The EDITOR environment variable is used to find the editor program.
Remove the named script. If the script was active, no script will be active after it is deletion.
Specify an alternate config file. The utilities are currently hardcoded to use /etc/dbmail.conf for their configs, and will halt if the config file cannot be found. Use the -f configfile option to specify your system's preferred config file location.
Quietly skip interactive prompts and helpful status messages which would otherwise be printed to stdout. Use two -q's to silence errors which would otherwise be printed to stderr.
Operate verbosely. Some of the utilities in the DBMail suite can take two -v's for extra verbosity. Those which don't understand this convention won't complain about having the extra -v and will simply operate at their normal verbosity.
