    Regarding the setting:

    "The number of times users are allowed to check their mail using pop3 per hour:"

    Firstly, if this is set to 0, does it actual prevent all mail to be checked via POP3 i.e. Does 0 actually mean 0 connections?

    If so, how do you specify unlimited?

    Does this setting only apply if POP3 flood protection is on? So effectively, if I turn off POP3 flood protection, I have unlimited connections and this setting no longer comes into play?

    Can can also tell you that as of the latest Stable version and after converting to maildir the script that enforces that limit is not currently working.

    Haven't seen any mention in the change log yet of that being addressed. There is a bug report that exists regarding the issue.

    Thank you both for bring this information to my attention.

    dalem, may I ask where you found this information?

    I have searched cpanel docs but was unable to find a description of the values possible for this setting.
