SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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 decisions.

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

mailbox
  The name of the mailbox to index.

EXAMPLE

Index bob s INBOX:


doveadm index -u bob INBOX
