    Current has some clients on my d.server.

    However, recently one complained that whenever his office wireless connection gets dropped while downloading email.

    1) When he reconnect to my server to download his email, it will prompt him that the particular email account is still being connected.

    Is there anyway I can reduce the connection time (idle time) or whatever so it is call in my server setting? (Currently using Cpanel)


    2) He also informs me that whenever his connection while downloading email gets dropped by his wireless, whenever he reconnects back to download the email, it will go from 1/200 email even when previously he has downloaded 30/200.
    (Is this his client side setting or my server side setting?)

    Hope someone can give some advise on this, thank you!

    Go on, have a guess
    1. No, it is built into cppop

    2. That's how the POP3 protocol works. It will always retain emails until a session is closed cleanly with a QUIT

    The answer is to not use an unreliable connection when downloading your email, doing so will cause these problems and there's nothing you can do from the server end about it.

    Just to check, is there anyway we can go around the CPPOP mail time out?
    Or anyone actually did something like that before?
