I have a sieve script which I would like to run on a folder in my cyrus imap setup. The script is already working fine processing newly incoming mail, but I have to run it on the old mail archive, too.

Is there an easy way to do that? or an easy way to "re-deliver" the mails without adding extra headers to them?

Via the admin user you can upload SIEVE scripts into the global namespace. These can be attached to folders via annotation and will be executed when a message is delivered to the folder.
