Hi Janne,
partially answering your question:

My sieve admin is cyrus. He "owns" the global cyrus scripts. Change =

these scripts as user cyrus. (I'm using 'Websieve')

My config /setup

sieve_extensions: fileinto reject vacation imapflags notify include =

envelope bod
y relational regex subaddress copy

# global sieve file "spam"
require ["fileinto"];
if allof (header :contains  "X-Spam-Flag" "YES") {
     fileinto "INBOX.Junk";

# private user sieve script
require ["include"];
include :global "spam";

More info:

Best regards
