What is managesieve?

A ManageSieve client library for remotely managing Sieve scripts,
including an
user application (the interactive 'sieveshell').

Sieve scripts allow users to filter incoming email on the mail server.
The ManageSieve protocol allows managing Sieve scripts on a remote
mail server. These servers are commonly sealed so users cannot log
into them, yet users must be able to update their scripts on them.
This is what for the "ManageSieve" protocol is. For more information
about the ManageSieve protocol see `RFC 5804

This module allows accessing a Sieve-Server for managing Sieve scripts
there. It is accompanied by a simple yet functional user application

   - Security fix: No longer leak environment variable SIEVE_PASSWORD
     when displaying usage help.
   - Per default enforce secure transport. Suggested by Jan Zerebecki.
   - Add possibility to use username/password from the .netrc file.
     The order is: command line options -> environment variables ->
     .netrc file -> ask user. Thanks to Grégoire Détrez.

   - Fail if TLS is requested, but server doesn't support TLS.
     Suggested by Jan Zerebecki.

   - Rework and enhance test-suite. Thanks to Matěj Cepl for nudging
     to proper pytest integration.
   - Lots if internal cleanup.
