We're running dbmail 2.2 and I don't see that table in our schema or the referenced doc in the source I built from, but the native filtering sounds ideal for our use (doesn't need to be all powerful). I guess it might be time to look at migrating to a new version. Thanks for that info!

There is also native filtering. Not as powerfull as sieve for most
use-cases, but it has global filters, which sieve doesn't have.
DBMail support simple SQL bases filter rules. These can be assigned
per user, or globally by assigning them to the 'anyone' user.
The dbmail_filters table contains the following fields:
id BIGINT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT
user_id BIGINT NOT NULL
headername varchar(128) NOT NULL
headervalue varchar(255) NOT NULL
mailbox varchar(100) NOT NULL
Headernames in this table must be lower-cased since they are joined
on the dbmail_headernames table which only contains lower-cased values.
Headervalues are matched as case-insensitive LIKE. They may contain
LIKE-style match expressions.
If a message's headers look like:
From: Foo Bar <email@example.com>
Subject: this is a test
Rules would match as follows: | headername | headervalue | match?
---+--------------+--------------------------+------- | from | firstname.lastname@example.org | no
| from | Foo Bar <email@example.com> | yes
| from | %firstname.lastname@example.org% | yes
| subject | test | no
| subject | test% | yes
