NAME
       doveadm-kick - Disconnect users by user name and/or IP address

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] kick [ -a anvil_socket_path] [-f] user
       doveadm [-Dv] kick [ -a anvil_socket_path] [-f] ip[/mask]
       doveadm [-Dv] kick [ -a anvil_socket_path] [-f] user ip[/mask]

DESCRIPTION
       doveadm's kick  command	is  used  to disconnect users by user name and/or the ip address,
       from which they are connected.

       In the first form, all users, whose login name matches the user argument, will be  discon-
       nected.

       In  the second form, all users, connected from the given IP address or network range, will
       be disconnected.

       In the last form, only users connected from the given IP address or networks range  and	a
       matching login name will be disconnected.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

       -a anvil_socket_path
	      This  option  is	used  to  specify  an absolute path to an alternative UNIX domain
	      socket.

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

       -f     Enforce the disconnect, even when there are multiple  users,  from  different  net-
	      works,  connected  to  a single process.	This option may be only required when you
	      have configured something like:

	      service imap {
		...
		client_limit = 1+n
		service_count = 0
		...
	      }

ARGUMENTS
       ip[/mask]
	      ip or ip/mask is the host or network, from which the users are connected.

       user   Is a user's login name.  Depending on the configuration, a login name  may  be  for
	      example  jane or john@example.com.  It's also possible to use '*' and '?' wildcards
	      (e.g. -u *@example.org).

EXAMPLE
       If you don't want to disconnect all users at once, you can check  who's	currently  logged
       in.   The  first  example  demonstrates	how to disconnect all users whose login name is 3
       characters long and begins with ba.

       doveadm who -1 ja*
       username 		     proto pid	ip
       jane			     imap  8192 ::1
       james			     imap  8203 2001:db8:543:2::1
       doveadm kick ba?
       kicked connections from the following users:
       bar baz

       The next example shows how to kick user foo's connections from 192.0.2.*.

       doveadm who -1 foo
       username 		    proto pid  ip
       foo			    imap  8135 fd95:4eed:38ba::25
       foo			    imap  9112 192.0.2.53
       foo			    imap  8216 192.0.2.111
       doveadm kick foo 192.0.2.0/24
       kicked connections from the following users:
       foo
       doveadm who f*
       username 		 # proto (pids) (ips)
       foo			 1 imap  (8135) (fd95:4eed:38ba::25)
