doveadm-altmove

       (dbox-only)

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] -A search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] -u user search_query

DESCRIPTION
       This command can be used with sdbox or mdbox storage to move  mails  to
       alternative  storage  path  when  :ALT=<path> is specified for the mail
       location.

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the altmove action with the
       environment of the logged in system user.

       In the second form, the command will be performed for all users.

       In  the  third  form,  only matching mails of the given user(s) will be
       moved to the alternative storage.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -A     If the -A option is present, the command will be  performed  for
              all  users.   Using this option in combination with system users
              from userdb { driver = passwd } is not recommended,  because  it
              contains  also  users  with  a lower UID than the one configured
              with the first_valid_uid setting.

              When the SQL userdb module is used  make  sure  that  the  iter-
              ate_query  setting  in /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext matches
              your database layout.  When using the LDAP userdb  module,  make
              sure  that  the  iterate_attrs  and  iterate_filter  settings in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP schema.  Oth-
              erwise doveadm(1) will be unable to iterate over all users.

       -r     When  the  -r  option  is given this command works the other way
              round.  Mails will be moved from the alternative storage back to
              the default mail location.

       -S socket_path
              The option's argument is either an absolute path to a local UNIX
              domain socket, or a hostname and port (hostname:port), in  order
              to connect a remote host via a TCP socket.

              This allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands
              through the given socket.

FILES
       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf
              Mailbox locations and namespaces.

       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/auth-*.conf.ext
              Authentication processes, including userdb settings.

EXAMPLE
       This example moves seen mails older than one week to alternative  stor-
       age under /nfsmount:
       mail_location = mdbox:~/mdbox:ALT=/nfsmount/%h/mdbox

       doveadm altmove -u johnd@example.com seen savedbefore 1w
