Slow POP3 Server
Posted on 2000-02-29
We have a pop3 server with a direct(DSL) connection to the internet. Our users are experiencing extreme latency in receiving their emails(sometimes overnight..sometimes more). The server is not behind a firewall, so that's not the problem. I've talked to our ISP and they say the DSL line is fine, except that our mail server "disappears" when there's no traffic on it. They suggested that I set up a continous ping to correct the problem. Has anyone had experience with this type of problem before? What's the best way to solve it?
What would be the best method for setting up a continous ping?
