-- Andreas Haase <andreas.haase at eastlink.de> is rumored to have mumbled on 
Dienstag, 28. September 2004 16:55 Uhr +0200 regarding Examining sieve 
scripts of other users out of a perl script:

Depends on the authentication mechs your installation supports. Some of the 
SASL mechs (AFAIK PLAIN and DIGEST-MD5) allow you to authenticate as a 
different user:

    sieveshell [--user=*user*] [--authname=*authname*] [--realm=*realm*]
    [--exec=*script*] *server*

So you could do

sieveshell --user=??? --authname=cyrus
