Default Restarting mail server: dovecotError: Error in configuration file

I'am configuring Dovecot to provide both a POP3 and an IMAP service. I'm using Debian Etch 4.03 and Postfix 2.3.

Restarting mail server: dovecotError: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf line 19: Unknown section type


Here's the section where the log indicates an error:

passdb sql { #### This is line 19 #####
args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf
}

userdb static {
args = uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/home/vmail/%d/%n allow_all_users=yes
}


Any idea? Why is it labeled as unknown?

TIA

It could be that your dovecot is compiled without sql support
