I'm unsure what netstat is reporting, but you should be able to telnet
to the sieve port on your machine and see if sieve is actually
running. ie:

% telnet localhost sieve
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
"IMPLEMENTATION" "Cyrus timsieved v2.1.17"
"SIEVE" "fileinto reject envelope vacation imapflags notify subaddress
relational regex"
telnet> quit

If you can't connect then likely timsieved isn't actually running --
either it's not enabled in your config, or (this has bitten me before)
it's not defined in /etc/services on your machine.
