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

SYNOPSIS
       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

DESCRIPTION
       This command is used to manipulate flags of messages.

OPTIONS
       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 *@example.org).
              When neither the -A option, nor  the  -F file  option,  nor  the
              -u user  was  specified,  the  command will be executed with the
              environment of the currently logged in user.

ARGUMENTS
       flags  Message flags as described in RFC  3501,  section  2.3.2  (Flags
              Message   Attribute):  \Answered,  \Deleted,  \Draft,  \Flagged,
              \Recent and \Seen.  And the IMAP keywords $Forwarded,  $MDNSent,
              $SubmitPending  and  $Submitted  or  user-defined keywords, e.g.

              One or multiple flags and/or keywords can be specified.

       search_query

              query.  See doveadm-search-query(7) for details.
