Webmail timeout


#1

Dreamhost has so many handy features and small-but-helpful extras that it makes the few real annoyances really stand out.

Why, oh why is the squirrelmail automatic timeout set so low? (I think it’s about 15 minutes) I’m forced to re-login nearly EVERY TIME I check email. No other web-based email client is so frustrating.

I checked the KB:

https://panel.dreamhost.com/kbase/index.cgi?area=2929

No, the date on my computer is set correctly.

Please fix this. Little things like this are important.

Thanks very much.

Hi Lloyd -

I’ll see if we can get this bumped up a bit. Before I ask, though, is there a certain length of time that seems optimal to you?

Thanks for the rapid response!

24 hours would suit me just fine :slight_smile:

Seriously, 1 hour would be acceptable.

Have you tried using the “Show Notify Popup” feature in the navigation frame? I can’t recall having a timeout while that was open…

I use the popup notification a LOT and I love it. Sometimes (very rarely) that popup times out or errors in some other way, but this is surely no different from any regular web page occasionally not displaying.
