       doveadm-fetch - Fetch partial/full messages or message information

       doveadm  fetch  can  be  used  to fetch messages' contents and metadata. This can be useful for scripts and for
       debugging. If you want to fetch messages one at a time, see doveadm-search(1).

              Please respect your users' privacy.

       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 pager.

       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.

       -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
              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.

       fields One or more result field names to display, if the search_query matches any messages.  In order to  spec-
              ify multiple fields, enclose them in single or double quotes.

       This  example  based  on  the  first  example  from  doveadm-search(1).   We  are  fetching  the  fields  mail-
       box and date.sent  from  user  bob's  mailbox with the guid "3a94c928d66ebe4bda04000015811c6a" for the messages
       with the UIDs 8, 25 and 45.

       doveadm fetch -u bob "mailbox date.sent" \
       mailbox-guid 3a94c928d66ebe4bda04000015811c6a uid 8,25,45
       mailbox: dovecot/pigeonhole/2.0
       date.sent: 2010-01-19 01:17:41 (+0100)
       mailbox: dovecot/pigeonhole/2.0
       date.sent: 2010-01-28 09:38:49 (+0100)
