DOVECOT(1) DOVECOT(1) NAME dovecot - secure mail server that supports mbox and maildir mailboxes SYNOPSIS dovecot [options] DESCRIPTION dovecot is a mail server whose major goals are security and extreme reliability. It tries very hard to handle all error conditions and ver- ify that all data is valid, making it nearly impossible to crash. It should also be pretty fast, extensible, and portable. OPTIONS -F Start dovecot as foreground process (otherwise: start as daemon) -p Ask for private SSL key password -a Dump configuration and exit; this includes doing a syntax check -n Dump all non-default configuration items and exit -c <config-file> Use <config-file> as path to the configuration instead of /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf --version Print version and exit --build-options Print build options and exit --exec-mail <protocol> [<section>] Start protocol from section SIGNALS Killing the Dovecot master process with a normal TERM signal does a clean shutdown. To reload the configuration files, you can send a HUP signal to the dovecot process; an acknowledgement is written to log file. If you specified log file paths manually in dovecot.conf instead of using syslog, you can send the USR1 signal to the dovecot process to make it close and reopen the log files.
