POP Limits Raised

LuxSci has raised the limit on the maximum average frequency of POP connections. Clients should not connect to their individual POP accounts more frequently than once per minute, on average, unless special dispensation is given. Violations will result in warnings and then, if they continue, short periods of suspended POP access. The previous limit was once every 2 minutes.

This limit exists to prevent users from checking their POP email excessively frequently, i.e. several times a minute. Such 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.
