Network level settings for the POP3 and IMAP collection
Max Connections
You can use a large number of simultaneous connections to provide for large amounts of email traffic being sent. Set this high if there are lots of accounts you wish to read from and you have sufficient bandwidth to handle large numbers of connections simultaneously.
Example interface
1 - 128

12
Connection Duration
This sets the maximum duration one account can use to collect email. After this time the connection will be closed and other accounts checked. Any email remaining will be collected next time the POP3 reader checks the account. This can prevent a few very large accounts saturating the connections and not allowing other accounts to be collected. If you can only make a few connections to your POP or IMAP servers but wish to receive email regularly you may want to decrease this setting
Example interface
1 - 6000 minutes

Maximum to download
This sets the maximum number of email collected from one account in one connection. After this number the connection will be closed and other accounts checked. Remaining email will be collected next time the POP3 reader checks the account. This can prevent a few very large accounts saturating the connections and not allowing other accounts to be collected. If you can only make a few connections to your POP or IMAP servers but wish to receive email regularly you may want to decrease this setting. Set it to 0 (default) to collect all email
Example interface
0 - 50000 email
0 email
25 email
Timeout
If the maximum timeout is exceeded the POP3 session is terminated. Any email remaining will be collected next time the POP3 reader connects. You should only need to increase this if you have servers on very poor connections, or extremely busy servers.
Example interface
30 - 9000 seconds
180 seconds
240 seconds
Transaction Duration
If the maximum duration is exceeded for a single transaction the POP3 session is terminated. Any email remaining will be collected next time the POP3 reader connects. You should not need to modify this unless working with extremely low bandwidth and very large email.
