       doveadm-fts - Manipulate	the Full Text Search (FTS) index

       doveadm [-Dv] fts command [OPTIONS] [ARGUMENTS]

       The doveadm fts COMMANDS	can be used to manipulate the Full Text	Search
       (FTS) index.

       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.

       This  command  uses  by	default	the output formatter flow (without the
       key= prefix).

       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 configured
	      with the first_valid_uid setting.

	      When the SQL userdb module is used  make	sure  that  the	 iter-
	      ate_query	setting	in /usr/local/etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf.ext
	      matches your database layout.  When using	the LDAP  userdb  mod-
	      ule,  make  sure	that the iterate_attrs and iterate_filter set-
	      tings in /usr/local/etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf.ext match your
	      LDAP  schema.   Otherwise	 doveadm(1)  will be unable to iterate
	      over all users.

       -F file
	      Execute the command for all the users in the file.  This is sim-
	      ilar  to the -A option, but instead of getting the list of users
	      from the userdb, they are	read from the given  file.   The  file
	      contains one username per	line.

       -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.

       -u user/mask
	      Run the command only for the given user.	It's also possible  to
	      use '*' and '?' wildcards	(e.g. -u *
	      When  neither  the  -A  option,  nor the -F file option, nor the
	      -u user was specified, the command will be executed with the en-
	      vironment	of the currently logged	in user.

	      The  name	of a namespace,	e.g. the name of the shared namespace.
	      When no namespace	was given, the user's private  namespace  will
	      be used.

   fts optimize
       doveadm fts optimize [-u	user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] [namespace]

       Optimize	 the  full text	search index.  This is also done automatically
       by the full text	search engines,	but this enforces it to	happen.

   fts rescan
       doveadm fts rescan [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path]	[namespace]

       Scan what mails exist in	the full text search index and	compare	 those
       to what actually	exist in mailboxes.  This removes mails	from the index
       that have already been expunged and makes sure that  the	 next  doveadm
       index  will  index  all the missing mails (if any). Note	that currently
       most FTS	backends do not	implement  this	 properly,  but	 instead  they
       delete all the FTS indexes. This	may change in the future versions.

       Report  bugs, including doveconf	-n output, to the Dovecot Mailing List
       <>.  Information about reporting bugs	 is  available
