doveadm-mount - Manage the list of mountpoints where mails are stored
doveadm [-Dv] [-f
commands can be used to manage the list of mountpoints where mails are stored.
This is used mainly for better error handling when a mountpoint isnt
mounted for some reason:
Dovecot automatically adds mountpoints to this list at startup.
If you dont want some of the mountpoints added, you can add a wildcard
ignore for it.
If a mail directory doesnt exist, its autocreated.
If the users mails arent mounted and filesystem permissions still
allow the autocreation, the user will see an empty mailbox and later will
have to redownload all mails.
If the mountpoint is known to be unmounted, Dovecot will simply fail
opening any mailboxes.
If dbox alternate storage isnt mounted and a mail in it is attempted to
be accessed, Dovecot normally rebuilds the indexes and notices that all the
mails in alt storage are expunged.
When the alt storage is mounted back and even if index is again rebuilt,
the mails wont necessarily become visible anymore for IMAP clients.
If the mountpoint is known to be unmounted, Dovecot wont rebuild
indexes and lose the mails.
Enables verbosity and debug messages.
-f formatter |
formatter for formatting the output.
Supported formatters are:
prints each line with
key: value pair on its own line and separates records with form feed character
prints a table header followed by tab separated value lines.
prints a table header followed by adjusted value lines.
-o setting=value |
Overrides the configuration
/usr/local/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.
Enables verbosity, including progress counter.
The directory name of a mountpoint
state of a mountpoint.
online or ignore.
doveadm mount add
If this command is run without any parameters, doveadm detects all missing
mountpoints and adds them (the same way as when Dovecot does at startup).
When a mountpoint
path is given, its added as a mountpoint.
state can currently be either
online (default) or
ignore. The ignore state is mainly useful with path wildcards to add mountpoints
that you never want Dovecot to automatically add, such as:
doveadm mount add /mnt/* ignore
doveadm [-Dv ] [-f
This command lists the mountpoints known to Dovecot and their state.
doveadm mount remove path
This command removes the specified
path from the mountpoint list.
