NAME
       doveadm-import - Import messages matching given search query

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] import [-S socket_path] [-s] source_location dest_parent search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] import [-S socket_path] [-s] -A source_location dest_parent search_query
       doveadm	 [-Dv]	 import   [-S  socket_path]  [-s]  -u  user  source_location  dest_parent
       search_query

DESCRIPTION
       This command can  be  used  to  import  mails  from  another  mail  storage  specified  by
       source_location	to one or more user's mailboxes. All the mailboxes are imported under the
       given dest_parent mailbox, or to root level if dest_parent is empty (""). The search_query
       can be used to restrict which mailboxes or messages are imported.

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

       In the second form, the mails will be imported for all users.

       In the third form, the mails will be imported 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.   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  config-
	      ured 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 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.   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.

	      This  allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the given
	      socket.

       -s     When the -s option is present, dest_parent and all new mailboxes under it  will  be
	      listed in the subscriptions file.

       -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
       dest_parent
	      The  name  of  the  destination  mailbox, under which the mails should be imported.
	      doveadm(1) will create the dest_parent mailbox if it doesn't exist.

       search_query
	      Copy messages matching this search query.  See doveadm-search-query(7) for details.

       source_location
	      This argument specifies the mailbox format and location of the source location. The
	      syntax   is   the   same	 as   for   the   mail_location  setting.   For  example:
	      maildir:/backup/20101126/jane.doe/Maildir 				       or
	      mdbox:/srv/mail/john.doe/mdbox:ALT=/nfsmount/john.doe/mdbox

EXAMPLE
       This example imports all mails from a backup under a backup-20101026 mailbox:

       doveadm import -u jane.doe@example.org \
       mdbox:/backup/20101026/jane.doe/mdbox backup-20101026 all

       Another	example  that  imports	only  messages from foo@example.org in the backup mdbox's
       INBOX to jane's INBOX:

       doveadm import -u jane.doe@example.org \
       mdbox:~/mdbox-backup "" mailbox INBOX from foo@example.org
