Hello everyone,

I have a kerio on a linux server with about 100 users (and growing).

The server does not directly receive the mail, but does download in pop3 from mail boxes on the provider (every user exists two times, on the provider's servers and on my kerio).

I set server to download every 3 minutes, my fear is: if 3 minutes is unable to finish the job of downloading all of the boxes the last users do not receive the email?

The solution would be to grow up the pop3 download time but I would not a longer delay.

Does anyone know how works download pop3? If the appointed time job does not end another job start in parallel or stop the first job?

I hope I explained.

greetings

Hello diaste,

The previous download will always be allowed to finish, and the new download will fail to start.

As you say, with 100 users there may be times when a three minute interval is not long enough for a single download to complete.

Maybe SMTP delivery direct to your Kerio Connect server would be better?

Best wishes,

Neil.

Hello Neil Whiteside,

thanks for the reply.

Can you explain better that "SMTP delivery direct"?
It's a kerio feature?

Regards

Hello diaste,

It is simply another method of delivering mail, and it allows Kerio to perform actions such as Spam filtering more accurately.

It isn't a "Feature" of Kerio Connect as such - it is in common use on most other types of mail server too.

This KnowledgeBase article explains how to configure SMTP delivery:

You ideally need a static IP address for your server, and you then need to configure your MX records to point to your server:

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Neil.
