How can tell SOGo to show the new version of the sogo.sieve file from the server ?
If i understand how sieve works in SOGo:

-) SOGo stores sieve rules in SQL db, export all sieve rules to sieve server.
-) SOGo doesn't read sieve rules from sieve server. so it's impossible to migrate sieve rules from other server by simply copying sieve rule files to file system.

This is bad design, because you cannot manage sieve rules in other apps via standard managesieve service. for example, Roundcube webmail with its official plugin 'managesieve'.

Wish this design could be changed someday.

I also think this is not a good design and this needs a better solution.

However, I solved some of my issues with this by creating a separate sieve file for other connected sieve/managesieve clients (like Thunderbird Out of Office plugin or Thunderbird Sieve Plugin) and including it within the ACTIVE sogo sieve file as follows (sogo sieve script file acts as master file and must be the active one):

require ["include"];
include :personal "OutOfOfficeScriptFile";

Kind regards
