IMAP server extremely slow/times out


#1

Anyone having problems with the DH IMAP server(s)? My connection to fetch headers in a folder either times out completely, and the folder does not have that much mail. It does have some large (3MB) attachments and I think the IMAP server maybe a bit overloaded and can’t scan the headers fast enough.


#2

Yes, similar (frustrating) problems.


#3

I am wondering if there are networking issues between the IMAP server and the box that I ssh into. All my mail accounts are also shell accounts, so my mail is kept on my hosting box. It looks like when I check mail, I check through some other box.


#4

same problems here. It’s not just IMAP tho; I’m having time-outs with POP as well.


#5

There’s nothing on the blog and my support request has gone unanswered for 2.5 hours. I hope someone at DH is looking into this.


#6

I’m with ya. My support ticket is 15 hours old at this point.


#7

This problem is now on the DH status blog.

They listed a bunch of fixes, but it still hasn’t done anything for my mail. Sigh.
