       doveadm-rebuild  -  Commands  related  to rebuilding various aspects of
       mails matching given search query.

       doveadm  [-Dv]  [-f  formatter]  rebuild <command>   [-S   socket_path]
       doveadm   [-Dv]   [-f  formatter]  rebuild <command>  [-S  socket_path]
       -A search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] rebuild <command> [-S socket_path] -F file
       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] rebuild <command> [-S socket_path] -u user

       The rebuild attachments command is used to  rebuilds  attachment  pres-
       ence.  doveadm(1) will print the message's uid for each match.
       When used with the -A or -u wildcard options, doveadm(1) will print the
       fields username and uid for each matching message.

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

       In the second form, the command will be performed for all users.

       In  the  third form, the command will be performed for all users listed
       in the given file.

       In the fourth form, only matching mails of the given  user(s)  will  be

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -f formatter
              Specifies  the  formatter  for formatting the output.  Supported
              formatters are:

              flow   prints each line with key=value pairs.

              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

              table  prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

       -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.

       This  command  uses  by  default the output formatter flow (without the
       key= prefix).

       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.

       -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 *
              When neither the -A option, nor  the  -F file  option,  nor  the
              -u user was specified, the command will be executed with the en-
              vironment of the currently logged in user.

              Resets attachment indicator for messages  matching  this  search
              query.  See doveadm-search-query(7) for details.

       This example demonstrates how to rebuild user bob's attachment status.

       doveadm rebuild attachments -u bob ALL
