DOVEADM-DUMP(1)			    Dovecot		       DOVEADM-DUMP(1)

NAME
       doveadm-dump - Dump the content of Dovecot's binary mailbox index/log

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] dump [-t type] path

DESCRIPTION
       Dovecot	uses  several  binary  index and log files in order to improve
       performance for accessing mails.	For some mailbox formats, such as  sd-
       box  and	mdbox, the index files are part	of the format itself.  For de-
       tails about index files,	see also: http://wiki2.dovecot.org/IndexFiles

       doveadm dump is used to show the	contents of  those  mailbox  index/log
       files,  in human	readable format. This is mainly	useful for Dovecot de-
       velopers	when debugging some problem.

OPTIONS
       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity	and debug messages.

       -o setting=value
	      Overrides	the configuration  setting  from  /usr/local/etc/dove-
	      cot/dovecot.conf	and  from the userdb with the given value.  In
	      order to override	multiple settings, the -o option may be	speci-
	      fied multiple times.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific	options:

       -t type
	      the  file	 type of the file to be	dumped.	 If the	type was omit-
	      ted, doveadm(1) tries to detect the type of path.	 type can be:

	      dbox	  => m.n (sdbox	or mdbox mailbox file)

	      fts-expunge-log
			  Dump the  list  of  expunged	mails  in  dovecot-ex-
			  punges.log.  Currently used only by fts-lucene.

	      fts-lucene  Dump the list	of indexed mails in lucene-indexes di-
			  rectory

	      imapzlib	  Uncompress an	IMAP traffic log, which	contains  data
			  compressed using the IMAP COMPRESSION	extension.

	      dcrypt-file Dump metadata	of a dcrypt encrypted file.

	      dcrypt-key  Dump metadata	of a dcrypt key.

	      index	  => dovecot.index, dovecot.map.index

	      log	  => dovecot.index.log,	dovecot.map.index.log

	      mailboxlog  => dovecot.mailbox.log

	      thread	  => dovecot.index.thread

ARGUMENTS
       path   The  path	 to the	corresponding dbox storage, index or log file.
	      If only a	directory is specified,	doveadm	tries  to  detect  the
	      type of files under it and dumps them.

EXAMPLE
       Look at the contents of a mailbox's index:

       doveadm dump ~/Maildir/.work/
