    Hi
    Since a couple of days, I have very slow transfer rates with the POP3 server of my debian lenny 5. The SMTP server seems fine.
    Any idea on the origin of the problem?
    Regards

    How do you notice that the POP3 is slow? By any calculated transfer speed on a specific client? Or do you see the problem on other clients as well?

    By checking transfer rates from different computers in the office (Outlook & Thunderbird). For example, it took more than 5 seconds to download a very short, text only, mail.

    Are there any errors in your mail log (in the /var/log/ directory)?

    But the clients use all the same internet connection / provider to the server or are they connected to the server via LAN?

    You could also check the messages log for any drops on the local firewall, if active, or check with tcpdump or similar if you have any retransmissions etc.

    Hi Falko and Ben
    The clients use all the same connection. But for the same client and on my computer, I have different accounts for different providers and the problem is only with my ispconfig 3 server.

    Some days ago, I had the following warn messages in /var/log/mail.warn :

    Do you think the problem is related to mysql-virtual_domains.cf ?
