doveadm-mount


SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] mount command [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
       The  doveadm  mount  commands  can be used to manage the list of mount-
       points where mails are stored.  This is used mainly  for  better  error
       handling when a mountpoint isn't mounted for some reason:

       *   If a mail directory doesn't exist, it's autocreated.  If the user's
           mails aren't mounted and filesystem  permissions  still  allow  the
           autocreation,  the  user  will  see an empty mailbox and later will
           have to redownload all mails.  If the mountpoint  is  known  to  be
           unmounted, Dovecot will simply fail opening any mailboxes.

       *   If  dbox  alternate  storage  isn't  mounted  and  a  mail in it is
           attempted to be accessed, Dovecot normally rebuilds the indexes and
           notices  that  all the mails in alt storage are expunged.  When the
           alt storage is mounted back and even if index is again rebuilt, the
           mails  won't  necessarily  become visible anymore for IMAP clients.
           If the mountpoint is known to be unmounted, Dovecot  won't  rebuild
           indexes and lose the mails.

       Dovecot automatically adds mountpoints to this list at startup.  If you
       don't want some of the mountpoints added, you can add a wildcard ignore
       for it.

              pager  prints each key: value pair on its own line and separates
                     records with form feed character (^L).

              tab    prints  a  table  header  followed by tab separated value
                     lines.

              table  prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
