doveadm [-Dv] pw -l

       doveadm [-Dv] pw -t hash [-p password] [-u user]

       doveadm  pw  is used to generate password hashes for different password
       schemes and optionally verify the generated hash.

       All generated password hashes  have  a  {scheme}  prefix,  for  example
       {SHA512-CRYPT.HEX}.   All  passdbs  have a default scheme for passwords
       stored without the {scheme} prefix.  The default scheme can be overrid-
       den by storing the password with the scheme prefix.

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -l     List all supported password schemes and exit successfully.
              There  are  up  to  three  optional  password schemes: BLF-CRYPT
              (Blowfish crypt), SHA256-CRYPT and SHA512-CRYPT.   Their  avail-
              ability depends on the system's currently used libc.

       -p password
              The  plain text password for which the hash should be generated.
              If no password was given doveadm(1)  will  prompt  interactively
              for one.

       -r rounds
              The  password  schemes  BLF-CRYPT, SHA256-CRYPT and SHA512-CRYPT
              supports a variable number of encryption rounds.  The  following
              table  shows the minimum/maximum number of encryption rounds per
              scheme.  When the -r option was omitted the  default  number  of
              encryption rounds will be applied.

               Scheme       | Minimum | Maximum   | Default
               BLF-CRYPT    |       4 |        31 |       5
               SHA256-CRYPT |    1000 | 999999999 |    5000
               SHA512-CRYPT |    1000 | 999999999 |    5000

       -s scheme
              The  password scheme which should be used to generate the hashed
              password.  By default the CRAM-MD5 scheme will be used.   It  is
              also  possible to append an encoding suffix to the scheme.  Sup-
              ported encoding suffixes are: .b64, .base64 and .hex.
              See also
              for more details about password schemes.

       -V     When  this  option  is given, the hashed password will be inter-
              nally verified.  The result of the verification  will  be  shown
              after the hashed password, enclosed in parenthesis.

       The  first password hash is a DIGEST-MD5 hash for
       The second password hash is a CRAM-MD5 hash for
