       doveadm-index - Index mailboxes


       doveadm [-Dv] index [-S socket_path] mailbox
       doveadm [-Dv] index [-S socket_path] -A mailbox
       doveadm [-Dv] index [-S socket_path] -u user mailbox


       Add unindexed messages in a mailbox into index/cache file. If full text search is enabled,
       also add unindexed messages to the fts database.

       The caching adds only the fields that were  previously  added  to  the  mailbox's  caching
       decisions, so it won't do anything useful for mailboxes that user's client hasn't accessed
       yet. You can use doveadm dump  command  to  show  a  specific  mailbox's  current  caching


       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -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
              configured 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 *
              When neither the -A option nor -u user was specified, the command will be  executed
              with the environment of the currently logged in user.


              The name of the mailbox to index.


       Index bob's INBOX:

       doveadm index -u bob INBOX
