       doveadm-flags - add, remove or replace messages' flags

       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -A
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -F file
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -u user

       This command is used to manipulate flags of messages.

       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:

       -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.

       -F file
              Execute the command for all the users in the file.  This is sim-
              ilar to the -A option, but instead of getting the list of  users
              from  the  userdb,  they are read from the given file.  The file
              contains one username per line.

       -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.

       -u user/mask
              Run  the command only for the given user.  It's also possible to
              use '*' and '?' wildcards (e.g. -u *
              When neither the -A option, nor  the  -F file  option,  nor  the
              -u user was specified, the command will be executed with the en-
              vironment of the currently logged in user.

       flags  Message flags as described in RFC  3501,  section  2.3.2  (Flags
              Message  Attribute): \Answered, \Deleted, \Draft, \Flagged, \Re-
              cent and \Seen.  And the  IMAP  keywords  $Forwarded,  $MDNSent,
              $SubmitPending  and  $Submitted  or  user-defined keywords, e.g.
              Junk, $NonSpam or $Label1.
              One or multiple flags and/or keywords can be specified.

              Manipulate the flags  of  messages  matching  the  given  search
              query.  See doveadm-search-query(7) for details.

   flags add
       doveadm   flags   add  [-u  user|-A|-F  file]  [-S  socket_path]  flags

       This command is used to extend the current set of flags with the  given

   flags remove
       doveadm  flags  remove  [-u  user|-A|-F  file]  [-S  socket_path] flags

       In order to remove the given flags from the current set of  flags,  use
       this command.

   flags replace
       doveadm  flags  replace  [-u  user|-A|-F  file]  [-S socket_path] flags

       This command is used to replace ALL current flags with the given flags.

       List and manipulate the message flags of the message with uid 81563

       doveadm fetch -u bob 'uid flags' mailbox dovecot uid 81563
       uid: 81563
       flags: \Answered \Seen NonJunk

       doveadm flags remove -u bob NonJunk mailbox dovecot uid 81563
       doveadm flags add -u bob '\Flagged $Forwarded' mailbox dovecot uid 81563
