DOVEADM-EXPUNGE(1)                           Dovecot                           DOVEADM-EXPUNGE(1)

       doveadm-expunge - Expunge messages matching given search query

       doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -A search_query
       doveadm [-Dv] expunge [-S socket_path] [-d] -u user search_query

       This  command  can  be used to expunge mails matching the given search query.  It is typi‐
       cally used to expunge old mails from users' Trash and/or Spam  mailboxes.  To  test  which
       messages  a  given  search  query would match, you can use doveadm fetch or doveadm search

       In the first form, doveadm(1) will executed the expunge 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, only matching mails of the given user(s) will be expunged.

       Global doveadm(1) options:

       -D     Enables verbosity and debug messages.

       -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 combination with system users from userdb { driver = passwd } is not
              recommended,  because  it contains also users with a lower UID than the one config‐
              ured with the first_valid_uid setting.

              When the SQL userdb module is used make sure  that  the  iterate_query  setting  in
              /etc/dovecot/dovecot-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.

       -d     Delete the mailbox if it is empty after expunging.

       -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

              This allows an administrator to execute doveadm(1) mail commands through the  given

       -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 -u user was specified, the command will be  executed
              with the environment of the currently logged in user.

              Expunge  messages  matching  this  search  query.   See doveadm-search-query(7) for

       This example expunges messages from Spam mailbox that were saved/copied  there  more  than
       two weeks ago:

       doveadm expunge -u jane.doe AT example.org mailbox Spam savedbefore 2w
