doveadm-dump - Dump the content of Dovecot's binary mailbox index/log
doveadm [-Dv] dump [-t type] path
Dovecot uses several binary index and log files in order to improve performance for
accessing mails. For some mailbox formats, such as sdbox and mdbox, the index files are
part of the format itself. For details about index files, see also: http://wiki2.dove-
doveadm dump is used to show the contents of those mailbox index/log files, in human read-
able format. This is mainly useful for Dovecot developers when debugging some problem.
Global doveadm(1) options:
-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.
-v Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
Command specific options:
the file type of the file to be dumped. If the type was omitted, doveadm(1) tries
to detect the type of path. type can be:
dbox => m.n (sdbox or mdbox mailbox file)
index => dovecot.index, dovecot.map.index
log => dovecot.index.log, dovecot.map.index.log
mailboxlog => dovecot.mailbox.log
thread => dovecot.index.thread
path The path to the corresponding dbox storage, index or log file. If only a directory
is specified, doveadm tries to detect the type of files under it and dumps them.
Look at the contents of a mailbox's index:
doveadm dump ~/Maildir/.work/
