[Dovecot] Could use some help setting Dovecot up for the first time

You sir, are my hero!!!

As it turns out, the queries i was using was hard coded to use group id 12.

If i might be so bold as to make a suggestion. I would update the page 
(http://wiki.dovecot.org/HowTo/DovecotLDAPostfixAdminMySQL) and change 
the /etc/dovecot/sql.conf part so that the example queries use the same 
groups as the rest of the documentation!

Thanks for the help everyone!
