Sieve scripts are in utf-8. You now have to use the true utf-8 name of the
folder in your sieve script, and it's automatically converted to the
modified utf-7 folder name internally.
This change is noted in the changelog for 2.3.11
The Sieve compiler now translates UTF-8 mailbox names used in fileinto to
modified UTF-7 so that messages will be successfully inserted into the
The old way of using the modified utf-7 form in the sieve script was really
wrong and hacky.
PS. It would be nice if http://cyrusimap.web.cmu.edu/imapd/changes.html was
kept up to date or removed... it's very old.
