doveadm-mount - Manage the list of mountpoints where mails are stored
doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] mount command [arguments]
The doveadm mount commands can be used to manage the list of mountpoints where mails are
stored. This is used mainly for better error handling when a mountpoint isn't mounted for
* If a mail directory doesn't exist, it's autocreated. If the user's mails aren't
mounted and filesystem permissions still allow the autocreation, the user will see an
empty mailbox and later will have to redownload all mails. If the mountpoint is known
to be unmounted, Dovecot will simply fail opening any mailboxes.
* If dbox alternate storage isn't mounted and a mail in it is attempted to be accessed,
Dovecot normally rebuilds the indexes and notices that all the mails in alt storage
are expunged. When the alt storage is mounted back and even if index is again
rebuilt, the mails won't necessarily become visible anymore for IMAP clients. If the
mountpoint is known to be unmounted, Dovecot won't rebuild indexes and lose the mails.
Dovecot automatically adds mountpoints to this list at startup. If you don't want some of
the mountpoints added, you can add a wildcard ignore for it.
Global doveadm(1) options:
-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.
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.
path The directory name of a mountpoint
state The state of a mountpoint. Either online or ignore.
doveadm mount add [path [state]]
If this command is run without any parameters, doveadm detects all missing mountpoints and
adds them (the same way as when Dovecot does at startup).
When a mountpoint path is given, it's added as a mountpoint. The state can currently be
either "online" (default) or "ignore". The ignore state is mainly useful with path wild-
cards to add mountpoints that you never want Dovecot to automatically add, such as:
doveadm mount add '/mnt/*' ignore
doveadm [-Dv ] [-f formatter] mount list
This command lists the mountpoints known to Dovecot and their state.
doveadm mount remove path
This command removes the specified path from the mountpoint list.
