My conf.d/10-logging.conf for dovecot 2.0.12 contains

| # mail_log plugin provides more event logging for mail processes.
| plugin {
|   # Events to log. Also available: flag_change append
|   mail_log_events = delete undelete expunge copy mailbox_delete mailbox_rename flag_change
|   # Group events within a transaction to one line.
|   #mail_log_group_events = no
|   # Available fields: uid, box, msgid, from, subject, size, vsize, flags
|   # size and vsize are available only for expunge and copy events.
|   mail_log_fields = uid box from subject msgid size
| }

Maybe that helps you out.
