There are no managesieve protocol proxies, but you could proxy it at the TCP 

Something like tcpproxy will let you forward TCP connection to another host.  
I think you can even configure netcat to do this.  Of course, your proxy 
machine can probably also do this in the IP stack.  On Linux, for instance, 
you could use iptables.
