DESY recently planned to migrate some of its UNIX based IMAP servers to dovecot. The latest releases of dovecot (version 1.2) include support for several mailbox fomats, quota handling, compressed folders, ACLs and allows for a comfortable configuration of namespaces. The additional sieve component and the managesieve protocol does enable users to configure server side filtering and managing sieve scripts. A web interface has been made available to let users compose and install syntactically correct filter rules without knowing the sieve language. One of the dovecot installations is in the pilot phase with several users, the other one is being set up currently
