If you do this, you'll need to revert your sieve scripts, if any, to be
compatible with the old setting. After updating the settings in
/etc/imapd.conf, you should to run the 'translatesieve' Perl script (in
the /tools directory) like so:
$ /<path to Cyrus binaries>/translatesieve -u -a
As explained in the man page, you should first use "Dry Run" mode, via
the "-n" flag, to see what would be changed.
Prior to use, you may wish to save backups of your sieve scripts.
