doveadm-dump - Dump the content of Dovecot's binary mailbox index/log

Dovecot uses several binary index and log files in order to improve
performance for accessing mails. For some mailbox formats, such as
sdbox and mdbox, the index files are part of the format itself. For
details about index files, see also: http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Index-
doveadm dump is used to show the contents of those mailbox index/log
files, in human readable format. This is mainly useful for Dovecot
developers when debugging some problem.
