I work in a company with all 40 users currently downloading email from individual pop3 accounts from our ISP.
I am urrently testing KMS and have an interesting general question (I think!) regarding downloading email from multiple pop3 accounts.

Is it stupid to keep these 40 mailboxes going with our very reliable, trouble-free ISP and download each users mail to KMS by creating individual pop3 download accounts in KMS and scheduling a download every 5 minutes for all?

Could I experience timeout issues with all accounts collecting simultaneously and with many messages over 1MB?

My logic is to keep the ISP pop3 accounts going as a backup (and not having all our eggs in the same basket) rather than changing MX records to deliver mail directly to KMS.

Any comments appreciated.

Not a problem yet - just want to set up KMS in the most efficient way and looking for feedback from other users who might have the same setup downloading from multiple pop3 accounts.

Until last week I had my KMS pop3 about 80 mailboxes every 4 minutes. I never had any problems with this setup. KMS does not pop3 all accounts at once. AFAIK it will do one after the other, with a few POP3 connections (~3 or 4) simultaneous.

This was all internally on my LAN, so I don't know how the 1Mbit line might affect things.
