DESCRIPTION
       doveadm  move can be used for moving mails between mailboxes for one or
       more users.  The search_query is used to restrict  which  messages  are
       moved into the destination mailbox.
       doveadm  copy behaves the same as doveadm move, except that copied mes-
       sages will not be expunged after copying.

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will execute the  move/copy  action  with
       the environment of the logged in system user.

       In  the  second  form, doveadm(1) will iterate over all users, found in
       the configured user_db(s), and  move  or  copy  each  user's  messages,
       matching the given search_query, into the user's destination mailbox.

       In the third form, doveadm(1) will iterate over all users, found in the
       given file, and move or copy each user's messages, matching  the  given
       search_query, into the user's destination mailbox.

       In  the  fourth  form,  matching mails will be moved or copied only for
       given user(s).

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.
              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
       destination
              The name of the destination mailbox, into which the mails should
              be moved or copied.  The destination mailbox must exist,  other-
              wise this command will fail.

       search_query
              Move/copy   messages  matching  the  given  search  query.   See
              doveadm-search-query(7) for details.

       user source_user
              The keyword user followed by a valid user name.  When this argu-
              ment  is  present, doveadm(1) will apply the search_query to the
              source_user's mail_location.
              Limitation: Currently the users, specified by -u user  and  user
              source_user, must share the same UID and GID.

EXAMPLE
       Move jane's messages - received in September 2011 - from her INBOX into
       her archive.

       doveadm move -u jane Archive/2011/09 mailbox INBOX BEFORE \
       2011-10-01 SINCE 01-Sep-2011
