       search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] move [-S socket_path] -A destination  [user  source_user]

       doveadm  [-Dv]  copy [-S socket_path] -A destination [user source_user]

DESCRIPTION
       doveadm  move can be used for moving mails between mailboxes for one or
       more users.  The search_query is used to restrict  which  messages  are
       moved into the destination mailbox.
       doveadm  copy behaves the same as doveadm move, except that copied mes-
       sages will not be expunged after copying.

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will execute the  move/copy  action  with
       the environment of the logged in system user.

       In  the  second  form, doveadm(1) will iterate over all users, found in
       the configured user_db(s), and  move  or  copy  each  user's  messages,
       matching the given search_query, into the user's destination mailbox.

       In  the  third  form,  matching  mails will be moved or copied only for
       given user(s).

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

       -u user/mask
              Run the command only for the given user.  It's also possible  to
              use '*' and '?' wildcards (e.g. -u *@example.org).
              When  neither  the -A option nor -u user was specified, the com-
              mand will be executed with  the  environment  of  the  currently
              logged in user.

ARGUMENTS
       destination
              The name of the destination mailbox, into which the mails should
              be moved or copied.  The destination mailbox must exist,  other-
              wise this command will fail.

       search_query
              Move/copy   messages  matching  the  given  search  query.   See
              doveadm-search-query(7) for details.

       user source_user
              The keyword user followed by a valid user name.  When this argu-
              ment  is  present, doveadm(1) will apply the search_query to the
              source_user's mail_location.
              Limitation: Currently the users, specified by -u user  and  user
              source_user, must share the same UID and GID.

EXAMPLE
       Move jane's messages - received in September 2011 - from her INBOX into
       her archive.

       doveadm move -u jane Archive/2011/09 mailbox INBOX BEFORE \
       2011-10-01 SINCE 01-Sep-2011
