The FORWARD mapping that we set up for SMTP servers breaks sieve fileinto actions.

Changes

Here's an example of a sieve rule that was broken:

if header :contains "X-Suspected-Spam" "true"
{
fileinto "Junk";
stop;
}

To reproduce:

1. Set USE_FORWARD_DATABASE=64 in option.dat.
2. Add a "fileinto" sieve rule to a test user.
3. Add a FORWARD mapping similar to:
 

FORWARD

 ims-ms|*@*  $Y$D$H$0@$1

4. Send a message to the test user that matches the conditions for your sieve rule. Observe what is logged and where the message is actually filed.

Here's a message that should have been filed into junk:

 
However, it was delivered to the inbox instead.
