DOVEADM-FLAGS(1)                    Dovecot                   DOVEADM-FLAGS(1)



NAME
       doveadm-flags - add, remove or replace messages' flags

SYNOPSIS
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -A
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -F file
       doveadm [-Dv] flags [-S socket_path] command flags search_query -u user

DESCRIPTION
       This command is used to manipulate flags of messages.

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.

       -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
       flags  Message flags as described in RFC 3501, section 2.3.2 (Flags Message  Attribute):  \Answered,  \Deleted,
              \Draft,  \Flagged,  \Recent  and  \Seen.  And the IMAP keywords ?Forwarded, ?MDNSent, ?SubmitPending and
              ?Submitted or user-defined keywords, e.g. Junk, ?NonSpam or ?Label1.
              One or multiple flags and/or keywords can be specified.

       search_query
              Manipulate the flags of messages matching the  given  search  query.   See  doveadm-search-query(7)  for
              details.

COMMANDS

   flags remove
       doveadm flags remove [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] flags search_query

       In order to remove the given flags from the current set of flags, use this command.

   flags replace
       doveadm flags replace [-u user|-A|-F file] [-S socket_path] flags search_query

       List and manipulate the message flags of the message with uid 81563

       doveadm fetch -u bob 'uid flags' mailbox dovecot uid 81563
       uid: 81563
