OK, I'm also new to sieve - and afters much work, I've been able to get
it running on my box using websieve. Here's the problem - it doesn't
call my filters!!!
How can I tell where the problem lies? Is it postfix? is it cyrus? I'm
stuck! Basically I see mail coming in via /var/log/mail.log but I don't
see any filter processing...
