Ohh, didn't know this existed. I'm still using sieve-php.lib from Dan
Ellis with some CRAM-MD5/DIGEST-MD5 patches I wrote to avoid the whole
plain text password issue. 

Does Net_Sieve not support CRAM-MD5/DIGEST-MD5 auth mechs? If it did
would that be good enough to solve your problem or are you looking for
SSL to secure the data transfer beyond the authentication?
