POP Limits Added

LuxSci imposes limits on the average frequency of POP connections. Clients should not connect more frequently than once every 2 minutes on average unless special dispensation is given. Violations will result in warnings and then, if they continue, short periods of suspended POP access.

This limit has been imposed because we have noticed that a significant number of users are checking their POP email as frequently as once per minute and sometimes once per second. This activity has a high probability of affecting the performance of the email servers when performed by many users at the same time.

Note that this rate limitation does NOT apply to IMAP connections and will not affect the sending of email via SMTP. WebMail access is also unaffected.
