For this, the ManageSieve protocol exists and this is implemented by dovecot-sieve, but other than installing roundcube and offering a web-based mail client that also supports ManageSieve, is there another way? A ManageSieve client that directly runs on the macOS client and interfaces with dovecot-sieve on the server?

For my small mailserver, I've got RoundCube setup + a few people have shell access and can edit stuff by hand if they like. This way I don't have to expose the ManageSieve port directly to the world (although it would probably be fine). 

In practice, I setup a default ruleset and almost everyone just uses that. has a list of clients that can use ManageSieve.
