doveadm-force-resync


SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] force-resync [-S socket_path] mailbox
       doveadm [-Dv] force-resync [-S socket_path] -A mailbox
       doveadm [-Dv] force-resync [-S socket_path] -u user mailbox

DESCRIPTION
       Under certain circumstances it may happen, that dovecot(1) is unable to
       automatically solve problems with mailboxes.  In  such  situations  the
       force-resync  command  may  be  helpful.  It tries to fix all problems.
       For sdbox and mdbox mailboxes the storage files will be also checked.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -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.

       -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 -u user was specified, the com-
              mand will be executed with  the  environment  of  the  currently
              logged in user.

ARGUMENTS
       mailbox
              The  name of the mailbox to fix. With mdbox all of the mailboxes
              are fixed, so you can use for example INBOX as the name.
