If the user tell ingo to store it again, yes, it will. Depending on  
the settings for ingo, it might also store it when a rule is  

During the next login? I don't believe so, I haven't looked though and  
dunno about recent versions of ingo

Yes, ingo will ALWAYS save it's rules in it's own format (in the prefs  
system? believe this is changable in recent versions)

If someone updates it manually using like thunderbird, cause you have  
the managesieve port world accessable, then their ingo rules would be  
idle and not used. Since the support for sieve scripts seems to be so  
rare, I would put that down to user knowledge, only manage your  
scripts using webmail or yourself, don't attempt both, unless you know  
sieve, and thunderbird sieve support requires user knowledge of how  
sieve works so.
