Small Business Server 2003 POP3 Connector April 19, 2009

Small Business Server 2003 users that use the POP3  Connector Manager and are affected by that annoying 15 minutes download interval, finally there is hope, here is a registry tweak to drop the interval from 15 minutes to 5 minutes;

FIRST. Take a backup of your registry

1. Open Regedit
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Micro­ soft/SmallBusinessServer/Network/P­OP3 Connector
3. Create a new “DWORD value” and type “ScheduleAccelerator” as the entry name
4. Select the DWORD and on the edit menu click modify, in the value box, type 3 and ensure the Decimal Radio button is clicked on the right.

(To determine the polling interval, the value that is configured on the “Scheduling” tab in the GUI is divided by the value that you type for the ScheduleAccelerator entry, example, if a 15 minute interval is specified in the GUI and you set the value of the ScheduleAccelerator entry to 3, the connector will poll ever five minutes, If you make it too short there can be problems with the POP3 connector starting a download before the previous download has started, it seems to work well with 5minutes)

5. Exit Regedit
