[Dovecot] A little assistance with Sieve

With all the mess that my email has become, it makes sense for me to try
to make use of Sieve, but I'm having quite the time finding out how to
make it work.  I'm running 1.0.13 on a Debian machine.  Sieve appears to
be compiled with it.  I can access managesieve, and I have set up
dovecot.conf with lda.  I do not get a NO response when I PUTSCRIPI, but
LISTSCRIPTS produces no result, so I assume it's not working properly,
though if I try with a non-existent script I get an error message.

1. Is anyone else seeing this, or am I doing something wrong?
2. I have seen through Googling some dovecot.conf examples that suggest I
should be using managesieve instead of lda (or in addition? - it's not
clear), as in protocol managesieve { ...

Any advice will be gratefully received.

Thank you
