NAME


doveadm-search - Show a list of mailbox GUIDs and message UIDs matching given search
query.

SYNOPSIS


doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] search [-S socket_path] search_query
doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] search [-S socket_path] -A search_query
doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] search [-S socket_path] -F file search_query
doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] search [-S socket_path] -u user search_query

DESCRIPTION


The search command is used to find matching messages. doveadm(1) will print the mailbox's
guid and the message's uid for each match.
When used with the -A or -u wildcard options, doveadm(1) will print the fields username,
mailbox-guid and uid for each matching message.

In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the search 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, the command will be performed for all users listed in the given file.

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

OPTIONS


Global doveadm(1) options:

-D Enables verbosity and debug messages.

-f formatter
Specifies the formatter for formatting the output. Supported formatters are:

flow prints each line with key=value pairs.

pager prints each key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form
feed character (^L).

tab prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.

table prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.

-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.

This command uses by default the output formatter flow (without the key= prefix).

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.

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

EXAMPLE


This example demonstrates how to search in user bob's dovecot mailboxes all messages,
which contains the word "todo" in the Subject: header.

doveadm search -u bob mailbox dovecot\* subject todo
3a94c928d66ebe4bda04000015811c6a 8
3a94c928d66ebe4bda04000015811c6a 25
3a94c928d66ebe4bda04000015811c6a 45

The search command is mainly useful when used together with doveadm fetch command. For
example to save message bodies of all messages from INBOX that have "todo" in subject,
use:

doveadm search -u bob mailbox INBOX subject todo |
while read guid uid; do
doveadm fetch -u bob body mailbox-guid $guid uid $uid > msg.$uid
done
