Sieve doesn't necessarily imply another protocol.  Do not confuse Sieve
and ManageSieve.

For example exim's implementation is entirely local; it is just a
different syntax for .forward files.  exim also provides another syntax
which is specific to it but has more features than Sieve.  Gory details
are at [1].

dovecot provides ManageSieve but you don't have to enable it.  Again,
you can simply drop the rules file on the server via whatever file
transfer protocol you normally use - scp, rsync, etc.
