       doveadm-auth - Test authentication for a user

       doveadm [-Dv] auth [-a auth_socket_path] [-x auth_info] user [password]

       The auth command can be used to test the authentication for the given user.

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -a auth_socket_path
	      This  option  is	used  to  specify  an absolute path to an alternative UNIX domain

	      By default doveadm(1) will use the socket /var/run/dovecot/auth-client.  The socket
	      may be located in another directory, when the default base_dir setting was overrid-
	      den in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf.

       -x auth_info
	      auth_info specifies additional conditions for  the  auth	command.   The	auth_info
	      option  string  has to be given as name=value pair.  For multiple conditions the -x
	      option could be supplied multiple times.
	      Possible names for the auth_info are:

		     The service for which the authentication lookup should be tested.	The value
		     may  be  the  name  of  a service, commonly used with Dovecot.  For example:
		     imap, pop3 or smtp.

	      lip    The local IP address (server) for the test.

	      rip    The remote IP address (client) for the test.

	      lport  The local port, e.g. 143

	      rport  The remote port, e.g. 24567

       user   The user's login name.  Depending on the configuration, the login name may  be  for
	      example jane or john@example.com.

	      Optionally  the  user's password.  doveadm(1) will prompt for the password, if none
	      was given.

       This example demonstrates an imap authentication test for user john, assuming the user  is
       connected from the host with the IP address

       doveadm auth -x service=imap -x rip= john johns_password
       passdb: john auth succeeded
