support for a generic interface to external spam and virus filters such
as spamassassin, called at sieve runtime (i.e. not decisions based on
earlier added headers), see .
Pigeonhole sieve for Dovecot  supports this. pigoenhole also has
experimental support calling arbitrary external programs in an
administrator-controlled way , which I use with great success to add
spamtrap messages to a database.
I hope this might convince people to try sieve once more as a
replacement for procmail ;)
