       doveconf - Dovecot's configuration dumping utility

       doveconf [-anNx] [-c config-file] [-f filter] [-m module]
       doveconf [-n] [-c config-file] section_name ...
       doveconf [-h] [-c config-file] [-f filter] setting_name ...

       doveconf	 reads	and  parses Dovecot's configuration files and converts
       them into a simpler format used by the rest of Dovecot. All  standalone
       programs,  such	as dovecot(1) and dovecot-lda(1), will first get their
       settings by executing doveconf.

       For system administrators, doveconf is mainly useful  for  dumping  the
       configuration in easy human readable output.

       -a     Show all settings with their currently configured values.

       -c config-file
	      read  configuration  from	 the  given  config-file.   By default
	      /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf will be used.

       -f filter
	      Show the matching configuration for the specified filter	condi‐
	      tion.   The  filter  option string has to be given as name=value
	      pair.  For multiple filter conditions the -f option can be  sup‐
	      plied multiple times.
	      Possible names for the filter are:

	      lname  The  local	 hostname,  e.g.  This will
		     only match hostnames which were configured like:
		     local_name { # special settings }

	      local  The server's hostname or  IP  address.   This  will  also
		     match hostnames which were configured like:
		     local { # special settings }

	      protocol, service
		     The protocol, e.g. imap or pop3

	      remote The client's hostname or IP address.

       -h     Hide the setting's name, show only the setting's value.

       -m module
	      Show only settings for the given module.
	      e.g.  imap, imap-login, lmtp, pop3 or pop3-login

       -n     Show only settings with non-default values.

       -N     Show settings with non-default values and explicitly set default

       -x     Expand configuration variables (e.g. $mail_plugins ⇒ quota)  and
	      show  file  contents (from e.g. ssl_cert = </etc/ssl/certs/dove‐

	      Show only the current configuration of  one  or  more  specified

	      Show  only  the  setting of one or more setting_name(s) with the
	      currently configured value.

       When Dovecot was configured to use different  settings  for  some  net‐
       works/subnets it is possible to show which settings will be applied for
       a specific connection.

       doveconf -f local= -f remote= -f service=pop3 -n

       doveconf can be also used to convert v1.x configuration files into v2.0

       doveconf -n -c /oldpath/dovecot.conf > /etc/dovecot/

       This  example shows how to ask doveconf for a global setting and a pro‐
       tocol specific setting.	The second command uses also the -h option, in
       order to hide the setting's name.

       doveconf mail_plugins
       mail_plugins = quota
       doveconf -h -f protocol=imap mail_plugins
       quota imap_quota

       This example demonstrates how to dump a whole configuration section.

       doveconf dict
       dict {
	 quota = pgsql:/etc/dovecot/dovecot-dict-sql.conf.ext
