    Hello,

    One of my users loves Neomail.

    And today I noticed 10 processes owned by this user which were neomail.pl:

    user domain.com 9.10 1.29 0.0
    Top Process %CPU 36.9 /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/local/cpanel/base/neomail/neomail.pl
    Top Process %CPU 31.1 /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/local/cpanel/base/neomail/neomail.pl
    Top Process %CPU 28.2 /usr/bin/perl -T /usr/local/cpanel/base/neomail/neomail.pl

    Is there any way to prevent such problems like overloading server by Webmail scripts?

    Thank you

    neomail, like all perl scripts, eats alot of server power.

    if the user has many emails in his inbox, high load will occur when accessing the webmail using neomail.


    recommend the user to switch to squirrelmail or horde.(squirrelmail is better and faster in my opinion)
