    For the last several weeks I have a customer using 5gb a day for his pop3
    In my maillog I see the entry
    pop3(user+company.com): Disconnected: Logged out top=2/4756 retr=964/72080684 del=0/482 size=36031344 bytes=9474/72105440

    I found these definitions
    retr = number of RETR command run- Any idea why so many?
    and
    bytes = number of bytes sent to client as a result of RETR command
    but what is before and after the / in bytes=9474/72105440 ?

    Could this user be my problem?

    Hello,

    It separates the bytes delivered vs. the bytes received.

    Thank you.
