As far as I can tell, dovecot-managesieve is the server part of sieve.
You can have it running to be able to use a sieve client to define your
sieve programs, instead of having to log on to the mail server and edit
a script file on the local harddrive. This is convenient if you use
virtual users or just don't want to give every user a login shell on the
mail server, but still make it possible for them to define their own
mail sorting rules.
