NAME
doveadm-expunge - Expunge messages matching given search query SYNOPSIS
doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] search_query doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -A search_query doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -u user search_query DESCRIPTION
This command can be used to expunge mails matching the given search query. It is typically used to expunge old mails from users' Trash and/or Spam mailboxes. To test which messages a given search query would match, you can use doveadm fetch or doveadm search commands. In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the expunge 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, only matching mails of the given user(s) will be expunged. 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 iterate_query setting in /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext matches your data- base layout. When using the LDAP userdb module, make sure that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter settings in /etc/dovecot/dove- cot-ldap.conf.ext match your LDAP schema. Otherwise doveadm(1) will be unable to iterate over all users. -d Delete the mailbox if it is empty after expunging. -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). When neither the -A option nor -u user was specified, the command will be executed with the environment of the currently logged in user. ARGUMENTS
search_query Expunge messages matching this search query. See doveadm-search-query(7) for details. EXAMPLE
This example expunges messages from Spam mailbox that were saved/copied there more than two weeks ago: doveadm expunge -u jane.doe@example.org mailbox Spam savedbefore 2w REPORTING BUGS

NAME
doveadm-move - Move messages matching the given search query into 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.

Otherwise 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.

destination The name of the destination mailbox, into which the mails should be moved. The destination mailbox must exist, otherwise this com- mand will fail. search_query Move messages matching the given search query. See doveadm-search-query(7) for details. EXAMPLE
Move jane's messages - received in September 2011 - from her INBOX into her archive. doveadm move -u jane Archive/2011/09 mailbox INBOX BEFORE 2011-10-01 SINCE 01-Sep-2011 REPORTING BUGS
