Hi folks. I'm VERY new to Dovecot and Sieve. But I'm having an issue 
that I need help with. For some reason my sieve daemon won't allow 
people to log on. I have dovecot set to read information from a MySQL 
table, and that works fine. I can login to dovecot's imap server just 
fine. But I have SOGo for the webmail and it won't login to the sieve 
daemon. Here's what I see in the log files when I, for example, try to 
save my preferences in SOGo:

==> info.log <==
Apr 28 00:33:14 lmtp(5938): Info: Connect from

==> /var/log/sogo/sogod.log <==

failure. Attempting with a renewed password (no authname supported)

==> info.log <==

0.024 - - 0 - 17

I've read a lot of pages about getting sieve running, but they show 
things I don't get. For example, from I see that 
telnet localhost 4190 should give this:

Escape character is '^]'.
*"IMPLEMENTATION" "Dovecot Pigeonhole" "SIEVE" "fileinto reject envelope 
encoded-character vacation subaddress comparator-i;ascii-numeric 
relational regex imap4flags copy include variables body enotify 
environment mailbox date ihave" *"NOTIFY" "mailto"
"VERSION" "1.0"
OK "Dovecot ready."

But I don't see any of that.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 Dovecot ready.

I've gotten to the point where I'm pulling my hair out. I don't understand dovecot well enough to even begin to guess what's going on. So I could REALLY use some pointers.

Thanks all!

Oh, ignore the first message. For some reason my MUA will occasionally send a draft to the smtp server. I still haven't figured that one out yet.
