doveadm-sieve - Commands related to handling Sieve scripts


doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] sieve_cmd [options] [arguments]


The doveadm sieve commands are part of the Pigeonhole Project (pigeonhole(7)), which adds
Sieve (RFC 5228) and ManageSieve (RFC 5804) support to the Dovecot secure IMAP and POP3
server (dovecot(1)). The doveadm sieve commands can be used to manage Sieve filtering.


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.

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 *@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.


Is the name of a Sieve script, as visible to ManageSieve clients.

NOTE: For Sieve scripts that are stored on disk, this is the filename without the
".sieve" extension.


sieve put
doveadm sieve put [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-a] scriptname

This command puts one new Sieve script in the script storage. The script is read from
standard input. If the script compiles successfully, it is stored under the provided
scriptname . If the -a option is present, the Sieve script is subsequently marked as the
active script for execution at delivery.

sieve get
doveadm sieve get [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

This command retrieves the Sieve script named scriptname.

sieve delete
doveadm sieve delete [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] [-a] scriptname ...

This command deletes one or more Sieve scripts. The deleted script may not be the active
script, unless the -a option is present.

sieve list
doveadm sieve list [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

Use this command to get an overview of existing Sieve scripts.

sieve rename
doveadm sieve rename [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] old_name new_name

The sieve rename command is used to rename the Sieve script old_name to new_name.

sieve activate
doveadm sieve activate [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

This command marks the Sieve script named scriptname as the active script for execution at

sieve deactivate
doveadm sieve deactivate [-A|-u user] [-S socket_path] scriptname

This command deactivates Sieve processing.
