Maybe it would be interesting for thoses who have the same error message than me during the installation of ISPConfig on Debian Lenny with Dovecot 1.2 .x (from backports) :

Restarting IMAP/POP3 mail server: dovecotError: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line 681: Unknown setting: sieve
Fatal: Invalid configuration in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
In fact there is a problem in the dovecot.conf.

The protocol "managesieve" is now called "lda" and the plugin "cmusieve" is called "sieve" from V1.2 of Dovecot.

So you'll have to replace this :

protocol managesieve {
By that :

protocol lda {
And this :

mail_plugins = cmusieve quota
(be careful : it's the mail_plugins directive INSIDE THE "protocol lda {" )

By that :

mail_plugins = sieve quota
After that, Dovecot was able to start for me.
