NAME

       doveadm-flags - add, remove or replace messages' flags

SYNOPSIS

       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -A
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -u user

DESCRIPTION

       This command is used to manipulate flags of messages.

OPTIONS

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

ARGUMENTS

       flags  Message  flags  as  described in RFC 3501, section 2.3.2 (Flags Message Attribute):
              \Answered, \Deleted, \Draft, \Flagged, \Recent and \Seen.  And  the  IMAP  keywords
              $Forwarded,  $MDNSent, $SubmitPending and $Submitted or user-defined keywords, e.g.

              One or multiple flags and/or keywords can be specified.

       search_query
              Manipulate  the  flags  of  messages  matching  the  given   search   query.    See
              doveadm-search-query(7) for details.
