DOVEADM-SEARCH-QUERY(7)             Dovecot            DOVEADM-SEARCH-QUERY(7)



NAME
       doveadm-search-query - Overview of search queries for doveadm mailbox commands

DESCRIPTION
       Several  doveadm(1)  commands  use  a search_query in order to act only on matching messages.  This manual page
       describes all SEARCH KEYS, which can be used in a search_query.

       Each search_query consists at least of one SEARCH KEY.  Most of the  SEARCH  KEYS  require  an  argument.   All
       SEARCH KEYS are case-insensitive.  The shortest valid search_query is ALL.  For example:

              doveadm search ALL

       Multiple search query expressions will be combined with the AND operator by default.  To find all messages that
       are new and greater than 50 kilobyte, one can use:

              doveadm search NEW LARGER 50k

       OR-ed SEARCH KEYS have to be written in parenthesis, when mixing ANDs and ORs.  Shells commonly require  escap-
       ing  for  parentheses.  To find messages that were saved on the "13th of April  2007" AND have the \Seen and/or
       \Flagged flag set, one can use for example:

              doveadm search SAVEDON 2007-04-13 \( SEEN OR FLAGGED \)

       It's also possible to specify the mailbox, in which should be searched.  Use either the keyword mailbox and the
       name  of  the  mailbox  or  the  keyword  mailbox-guid  and  the  mailbox's  globally  unique identifier in the
       search_query.  To find all messages in the mailbox with the GUID "44f68b13ce97044b837f000035ca9452" use:

              doveadm search mailbox-guid 44f68b13ce97044b837f000035ca9452 ALL

       To list all deleted messages in the "Trash" folder use:

              doveadm search mailbox Trash DELETED

DATE SPECIFICATION
       doveadm(1) supports a few additional date specification formats.  They can be used anywhere, where a date spec-
       ification value is obligatory.

       day-month-year
              Default IMAP4rev1 date format.
              day, the day of month: 1-31.
              month, the abbreviated month name: Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov or Dec.
              year, four digits of year, e.g.  2007.
              For example the "13th of April 2007" will be represented as 13-Apr-2007.

       interval
              Combination of a positive integer number and a time unit.
              Available time units are: weeks (abbr: w), days (abbr: d), hours (abbr: h),  mins  (abbr:  m)  and  secs
              (abbr: s).
              To match messages from last week, you may specify for example: since 1w, since 1weeks or since 7days.

       Unix timestamp
              A  10  digit Unix timestamp, seconds since the 1st of January 1970, 00:00:00 UTC.  For example the "13th
              of April 2007" will be represented as 1176418800.

       YYYY-MM-DD
              Extended ISO-8601 calendar date format.  For example the "13th of April 2007"  will  be  represented  as
              2007-04-13.

SIZE
       doveadm(1) provides also an additional size representation format.  The following formats can be used anywhere,
       where a size value is obligatory.

       octets The message size in octets, as specified in the IMAP4rev1 specification.

       size   The message size in B (byte), k (kilobyte), M (megabyte), G (gigabyte) or T (terabyte).
              To match messages, bigger than 1 megabyte, you may specify for example: larger 1M or larger 1024k.
