So .ext is just an extension to the config file. For some reason I kept putting it in the conf.d/ dir and calling a .conf file. At least this is now working for me, thanks Timo.

> Timo, thanks for the reply, the problem is that with dovecot 1.x the wiki recommends the connect string and password_query/user_query be in the sql.conf include file. According to wiki2 I should also be able to put these settings on the sql.conf include file but I get an error no matter what I put on there.

Do it like in the example-config. The file wasn't called sql.conf, it
was called dovecot-sql.conf.ext. It's not supposed to be !included.
That's why you get:

> doveconf: Fatal: Error in configuration file /usr/local/etc/dovecot/conf.d/sql.conf line 1: Unknown setting: password_query
