NAME doveadm-quota - Initialize/recalculate or show current quota usage

SYNOPSIS doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command -A doveadm [-Dv] [-f formatter] quota [-S socket_path] command -u user

DESCRIPTION In the first form, doveadm(1) will execute the command for the cur- rently logged in user.

In the second form, the command will be performed for all users.

In the third form, the command will affect only the matching user(s).

Note: The quota get and quota recalc commands are only available when the global mail_plugins setting contains the quota plugin.

OPTIONS 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.

-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 configured with the first_valid_uid setting.

When the SQL userdb module is used make sure that the iter- ate_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. Oth- erwise doveadm(1) will be unable to iterate over all users.

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

COMMANDS quota get doveadm [-f formatter] quota get [-A|-u user]

The quota get command is used to display the current quota usage.

This command uses by default the output formatter table.

quota recalc doveadm quota recalc [-A|-u user]

The quota recalc command is used to recalculate the current quota usage.

FILES /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf Dovecot’s main configuration file, including the dict section.
