    Hey everyone,

    I am just peeking around in my mail log and noticed that I have one of my users that is almost always logging in and out of imap. Here is a portion of the log, Should I be worried?

    Code:
    Mar 22 21:31:59 webserver imapd: LOGIN, user=domain.com_user, ip=[::ffff:127.0.0.1], protocol=IMAP

    That user probably configured his email client to check for mails every minute. If this causes a problem for your server (load-wise), you should contact that user and ask him to stop this.

    I suppose that he could have just left the webmail client open all day, it was just a little disturbing to see, I didn't know if something happened.

    Thanks Falko!
