I have dovecot 1.x, all's working well, thanks
now that I'm using K9 mail on Android phone, whenever I try to access
emails with an imap collect 'pass' from Snapper mail client on Palm, I
"max number of connections from user+ip exceeded"
I'm currently at default (unspecified) of 10 imap/3 pop
what's a reasonable next number of IMAP connections I should up it to ?
that won't bite on the backside...?
12 ? 20 ?
when I run IMAP pass from Snapper, I only run it over inbox, maybe one
other folder, max 2 folders, so 12 should do ?
/etc/dovecot# grep max_user *
dovecot.conf: #mail_max_userip_connections = 10
dovecot.conf: #mail_max_userip_connections = 3
