MBPATH(8) Cyrus IMAP MBPATH(8)

NAME

mbpath - Cyrus IMAP documentation

Translate mailbox names to filesystem paths

SYNOPSIS

mbpath [ -C config-file ] [ -l ] [ -m ] [ -q ] [ -s ] [ -u ] [ -a | -A | -M | -S | -U ] [ mailbox-names... ]

DESCRIPTION

Given a mailbox name or a space separated list of mailbox names, mbpath outputs the filesystem path(s) of the mailbox. By default, the mailboxes' data partition paths are shown (same as -D). See Selectors for selecting which filesystem path(s) to output.

mbpath reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified otherwise by -C. It uses <configdirectory>/mailboxes.db to locate the mailboxes on disk.

OPTIONS

-C config-file
Use the specified configuration file config-file rather than the default imapd.conf(5).

-l
Local mailboxes only (exits with error for remote or nonexistent mailboxes)

-m
Output the path to the metadata files (if different from the message files). Legacy, use -M.

-q
Suppress any error output.

-s
If any error occurs, stop processing the list of mailboxes and exit.

-u
The specified mailbox-names are users, not mailboxes.

SELECTORS

-A
Show the mailbox archive path

-D
Show the mailbox data path (default)

-M
Show the mailbox metadata path (same as -m)

-S
Show the user sieve scripts path

-U
Show the user files path (seen, sub, etc)

-a
Show all paths, as if all selectors were specified

EXAMPLES

mbpath user.jsmith
Display the data path for mailbox user.jsmith.


mbpath -M user.jsmith
Display the metadata path for mailbox user.jsmith.


mbpath -u -S jsmith
Display the sieve scripts path for user jsmith.


FILES

/etc/imapd.conf, <configdirectory>/mailboxes.db
