doveadm-dump


SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] dump [-t type] path

DESCRIPTION
       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-
       Files

       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.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -t type
              the  file  type of the file to be dumped.  If the type was omit-
              ted, doveadm(1) tries to detect the type of path.  type can be:

              dbox        => m.n (sdbox or mdbox mailbox file)

              index       => dovecot.index, dovecot.map.index

              log         => dovecot.index.log, dovecot.map.index.log

              mailboxlog  => dovecot.mailbox.log

              thread      => dovecot.index.thread

ARGUMENTS
       path   The path to the corresponding dbox storage, index or  log  file.
              If  only  a  directory is specified, doveadm tries to detect the
              type of files under it and dumps them.

EXAMPLE
       Look at the contents of a mailbox's index:

       doveadm dump ~/Maildir/.work/
