NAME
       doveadm-altmove - Move matching mails to the alternative storage (dbox-only)

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] -A search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] -F file search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] altmove [-r] [-S socket_path] -u user search_query

DESCRIPTION
       This command can be used with sdbox or mdbox storage to move mails to alternative storage path when :ALT=<path>
       is specified for the mail location.

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the altmove 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 moved to the alternative storage.

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 combina-
              tion  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/dove-
              cot-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.

       -r     When the -r option is given this command works the other way round.  Mails will be moved from the alter-
              native storage back to the default mail location.

       -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
              Messages  matching  this  search  query  will  be moved to alt storage.  See doveadm-search-query(7) for
              details.

FILES
       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-mail.conf
              Mailbox locations and namespaces.

       /etc/dovecot/conf.d/auth-*.conf.ext
              Authentication processes, including userdb settings.

EXAMPLE
       This example moves seen mails older than one week to alternative storage under /nfsmount:
       mail_location = mdbox:~/mdbox:ALT=/nfsmount/%h/mdbox

       doveadm altmove -u johndATexample.com seen savedbefore 1w
