Hey there,


i need some help with an administrativ dovecot question.


I run a dovecot 2.2.33 ubuntu server with mdbox and "zlib_save = gz
zlib_save_level = 6". Now i want to fetch the mailheader from some mails via
doveadm fetch -u <user> hdr uid <uid>. The only thing what i receive is some
binary stuff. Is there a way, i can tell the dovemadm fetch command, that he
should deflate the output for me?


Yours sincerely

Pascal Rudolf
