There's supposed to be a daemon?

Does .dovecot.sieve.err exist?  I believe I tried something similar to
that at first and had to change "from" to "From"

Most certainly though check for the existance (and contents) of the
.dovecot.sieve.err file, it'll tell you exactly what's wrong (assuming
sieve is probably configured and running).
