       doveadm-mailbox - Commands related to handling mailboxes

       doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] mailbox_cmd [options] [arguments]

       doveadm mailbox can be used to query and modify mailboxes.

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -f formatter
	      Specifies the formatter for formatting the output.  Supported formatters are:

	      flow   prints each line with key=value pairs.

	      pager  prints  each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form
		     feed character (^L).

	      tab    prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

	      table  prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

       -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

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

       -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.

	      Is the name of a mailbox, as visible to IMAP clients, except in UTF-8  format.  The
	      hierarchy  separator between a parent and child mailbox is commonly '/' or '.', but
	      this depends on your selected mailbox storage format and	namespace  configuration.
	      The mailbox names may also require a namespace prefix.

   mailbox create
       doveadm mailbox create [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-g guid] [-s] mailbox ...

       This  command  is used to create one or more mailboxes.	The mailbox format of the created
       mailboxes depends on the mail_location setting, or the user's mail field, returned by  the

       -g guid
	      Create the mailbox with the specified GUID.

       -s     When  this option was given, the created mailboxes will be also added to the user's

   mailbox delete
       doveadm mailbox delete [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-s] mailbox ...

       This command deletes a mailbox and expunges all the messages it contains.  If the  mailbox
       has any children, they won't be deleted.
       When the -s option is present, the deleted mailboxes will be also unsubscribed.

   mailbox list
       doveadm mailbox list [-7|-8] [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-s] [mailbox ...]

       To  get	an  overview  of  existing mailboxes use this command.	It's also possible to use
       wildcards in the mailbox name.
       When the -s option is present, only subscribed mailboxes will be listed. Listed	subscrip-
       tions may also contain mailboxes that are already deleted.

       -7     Lists the mailboxes with mUTF-7 encoding.

       -8     Lists the mailboxes with UTF-8 encoding.

   mailbox mutf7
       doveadm mailbox mutf7 [-7|-8] name ...

       The  mailbox  mutf7  command  may be used to convert the international mailbox name into a
       modified version of the UTF-7 encoding and vice versa.  See RFC 3501, section 5.1.3 (Mail-
       box International Naming Convention).

       -7     Indicates  that the name's string representation is mUTF-7 encoded and it should be
	      converted to UTF-8.

       -8     Indicates that the name's is UTF-8  encoded  and	should	be  converted  to  mUTF-7
