NAME


doveadm-expunge - Expunge messages matching given search query

SYNOPSIS


doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] search_query
doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -A search_query
doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -F file search_query
doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -u user search_query

DESCRIPTION


This command can be used to expunge mails matching the given search query. It is
typically used to expunge old mails from users' Trash and/or Spam mailboxes. To test which
messages a given search query would match, you can use doveadm fetch or doveadm search
commands.

In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the expunge action with the environment of the
logged in system user.

In the second form, the command will be performed for all users.

In the third form, doveadm(1) will expunge messages of the users listed in the given file.

In the fourth form, only matching mails of the given user(s) will be expunged.

OPTIONS


Global doveadm(1) options:

-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.

-o setting=value
Overrides the configuration setting from /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf and from the
userdb with the given value. In order to override multiple settings, the -o option
may be specified multiple times.

-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.

-F file
Execute the command for all the users in the file. This is similar 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.

-d Delete the mailbox if it is empty after expunging.

-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 the -F file option, nor the -u user was specified,
the command will be executed with the environment of the currently logged in user.

ARGUMENTS


search_query
Expunge messages matching this search query. See doveadm-search-query(7) for
details.

EXAMPLE


This example expunges messages from Spam mailbox that were saved/copied there more than
two weeks ago:

doveadm expunge -u [email protected] mailbox Spam savedbefore 2w
