Exclamation Dovecot: Fatal: Plugin cmusieve


I am trying to configure dovecot on Fedora 6. I get an error in the log file stating:
Fatal: Plugin cmusieve not found from directory /usr/lib/dovecot/lda
My config file looks like this for the LDA section:
## LDA specific settings

protocol lda {
log_path = /home/vmail/dovecot-deliver.log
#auth_socket_path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-master
postmaster_address =
#mail_plugins = cmusieve
global_script_path = /home/vmail/globalsieverc

# Address to use when sending rejection mails.
#postmaster_address =

# Hostname to use in various parts of sent mails, eg. in Message-Id.
# Default is the system's real hostname.
#hostname =

# Support for dynamically loadable plugins. mail_plugins is a space separated
# list of plugins to load.
mail_plugins = cmusieve
mail_plugin_dir = /usr/lib/dovecot/lda

# Binary to use for sending mails.
#sendmail_path = /usr/lib/sendmail

# UNIX socket path to master authentication server to find users.
auth_socket_path = /var/run/dovecot/auth-master
Does anyone have an idea of what I am missing here to get this fatal plugin error.

Better late than never? At least the next person who find this question through google might be helped..

Anyway, replacing

mail_plugins = cmusieve

mail_plugins = sieve
as per should do the trick.
