       Add unindexed messages in a mailbox into index/cache file. If full text
       search is enabled, also add unindexed messages to the fts database.

       The  caching  adds  only  the  fields that were previously added to the
       mailbox's caching decisions, so it won't do anything useful  for  mail-
       boxes  that user's client hasn't accessed yet. You can use doveadm dump
       command to show a specific mailbox's current caching decisions.

       Messages can also be added automatically  to  full  text  search  index

       plugin {
         fts_autoindex = yes
       in /etc/dovecot/conf.d/90-plugin.conf.

       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.

       -n max_recent
              An integer value, which specifies the maximum number of  \Recent
              messages  in  mailboxes.   If  the  mailbox  contains  more than
              max_recent messages with \Recent flag set, the mailbox will  not
              be  indexed.   This  may be useful to avoid unnecessary indexing
              for large mailboxes that are never opened.

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

              The name of the mailbox to index.
