How many POP3 connections can I have at the same time?
Hi to everybody.
I realized a "local mailserver", that will be connected with a slow dial-up connection to a main mailserver(based on ISPConfig).
To have an idea of which email the local user have received, without download it, I've realized a perl script based on the function use Net::POP3; that will create a POP3 connection to all the accounts of that particular domain and retrieve to me the sender,receiver,date,size,subject,UIDL.
Now, because of the slowness of the connection (expecially a big latency), this script will take a while to be executed.
I tried running a script for every account, and it's faster... but it's look like I can not have more than 4 POP3 connections at the same time... and if for example I've an account with 100 emails and the others with 2 emails, it will be not so faster...
I tried also to split the script, fetching the email informations based of the number made from the "list" command, but again it's look like I can make just 4 POP3 connections at the same time...
