Zimbra SkillZ: Using Sieve Filters on Zimbra via the Admin Console

Hello Zimbra Customers, Partners & Friends,

This article is a short how-to on using Sieve filters on Zimbra via the Admin Console. Sieve is a powerful scripting language for filtering incoming email messages. While Zimbra supports user set incoming email filters, the Sieve filters are meant to be set up and installed by administrators.

Here’s a link to the blog covering using Sieve filters in Zimbra via the command line using zmprov.

    Hello Barry, Hello All,

    Sieve filter offer great possibilies.
    By the way, I can’t see this section in admin section, even If i’m running an 8.8.15_P33 community version.

    Should I setup something else ?

    Thanks & Regards,
