So what can you find in /var/log/dovecot-info.log and /var/log/dovecot.log
when a mail is delivered to the test account?

Seems correct.

Can you see any .dovecot.sieve.log in the same directory as .dovecot.sieve,
there sieve related errors would be written, if any.

> * I check back [test_felamimail.sieve] this line ( vacation :days 1 :addresses ["test at acelsys.com "] text: ) there is no space after .com, I don't know why when I 1st time paste into egroupware it will add space for me. I can send/receive mail, just can't activate Vacation Notice. Whats wrong ?

The vacation notice seems to be activated, but does not work.
We will need some relevant logfile output and doveconf -n output
as well as dovecot and pigeonhole version you are using,
otherwise it will be difficult to help you.
