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

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

       Dovecot  uses  several  binary  index and log files in order to improve
       performance for accessing mails. For some mailbox formats, such as  sd-
       box  and mdbox, the index files are part of the format itself.  For de-
       tails about index files, see also:

       doveadm dump is used to show the contents of  those  mailbox  index/log
       files,  in human readable format. This is mainly useful for Dovecot de-
       velopers when debugging some problem.

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -o setting=value
              Overrides  the  configuration  setting  from  /etc/dovecot/dove-
              cot.conf  and from the userdb with the given value.  In order to
              override multiple settings, the -o option may be specified  mul-
              tiple times.

       -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)

                          Dump the  list  of  expunged  mails  in  dovecot-ex-
                          punges.log.  Currently used only by fts-lucene.

              dcrypt-key  Dump metadata of a dcrypt key.

              index       => dovecot.index,

              log         => dovecot.index.log,

              mailboxlog  => dovecot.mailbox.log

              thread      => dovecot.index.thread

       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.

       Look at the contents of a mailbox's index:

       doveadm dump ~/Maildir/.work/
