doveadm-move

       another mailbox

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] move [-S socket_path] destination search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] move [-S socket_path] -A destination search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] move [-S socket_path] -u user destination search_query

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.

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the move  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 each user's messages, matching  the
       given search_query, into the user's destination mailbox.

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

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).
