How can i speed up pop3 fetching speed in Gmail
Posted on 2014-10-23
I am having some issues with the speed at which G-mail fetches emails from other addresses using pop3.
This originally started when a client complained that some of her emails were taking a couple of hours to come in. This is a big problem for her as a lot of emails are time sensitive. Not returning with quotes fairly quickly has affected the receiving of certain contracts.
After some research I decided to change from pop3 to direct forwarding through c-panel from our hosting service. This solved the time problem with emails arriving straight away.
The problem this has now thrown up is her mailbox quota on our server keeps filling up. I have checked with the hosting company about using forwarding and pop together, but they say she will then receive all emails twice.
Any research I have done seems to indicate that I am at G-mail’s mercy regarding when they pop the mail from outside accounts.
Does anybody have suggestions on how to speed this up or maybe an alternative route to take.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
