how many connections with email?

Can someone tell me how many users at a time can get there mail of my linux server?

Is there a limit of the amount of connections or depends it on the memory/processor of the machine.

I've the idea my linux-server denies the access when a certain max is reached. Can this be adjusted somewhere??

You set this limit via the mail server's config file. For example, the sendmail file is located at /etc/ and for others it's located at other directory.

# maximum number of children we allow at one time
O MaxDaemonChildren=40
^-- here you can limit the maxdaemonchildren that you can run on the machine.

Hope this helps
