    Hello,

    We have setup the POP connections per IP to 10 through WHM > Service Configuration >> Courier Configuration

    My question:-
    1) What's the time interval over which the count is aged per IP ?
    2) Does it over takes the settings in WHM > Tweak Settings > The number of times users are allowed to check their mail using pop3 per hour. Zero is unlimited. (cppop only) = 100

    Please shed some light on this...

    Thank you

    Any server running Courier is using the maildir format of storing mail. cppop was only used back when we used the mbox format of storing mail. Therefore the cppop setting likely will do nothing for you since you are using Courier.

    I believe the number of connections per IP is based on simultaneous connections, not connections over a given period of time like the cppop setting.

    The purpose of Courier Configuration is so you can configure Courier via the WHM interface. Courier is used for POP3 on maildir systems and Courier-IMAP is used for IMAP on maildir systems.

    The reason for allowing more than 1 connection per IP is that many users on Cable and Dial-Up connections may share the same IP address.
