In the process of moving all mailing lists to their own email account for organizational purposes (stuck with using Outlook 2002 at the office so this helps organize things).
Noticed that now when checking some 24 mail lists, each on separate POP accounts, that only 4 are ever checked at any given time. Occasionally those 4 will complete and I will get 8 (another 4 near the bottom of the list). Previously have only had to check 3 at any given time on the domain, and previous version of Outlook (2000) checked only 1 account at a time rather than multithreading and doing (trying) all accounts at the same time. Have disabled virus and firewall protections between Outlook and the vpopmail install to ensure it wasn't a setting there(since all the accounts are not in use and it is checking empty POP boxes) but the problem persists. I can't find documentation on MS end of things indicating any limitations to the number of concurrent POP per server, and since it is checking another dozen or so accounts at the same time without problems... Leads me to believe it may be on the server end of things. Mail logs show the 4 connections normally, but no failures or anything for the additional connections. Doing a send receive individually works like a charm, it is only when the server gets all 24 requests at once that it returns only 4. Any settings in vpopmail or related libraries with the qmail install that may be causing this? Thanks Dave
