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 sdbox and mdbox, the  index  files  are
       part   of   the   format   itself.    For   details   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 developers when debugging some problem.

OPTIONS

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -v     Enables verbosity, including progress counter.

       Command specific options:

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

              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 index or log file. If only a directory is  specified,
              doveadm tries to find and dump index type file under it.

EXAMPLE

       Look at the contents of a mailbox's index:

       doveadm dump ~/Maildir/.work/
