    Is there any way to get the pop3 connector to retrieve mail more frequent
    than the 15 mins, say every 1 minute.

  2. Hi Kieth,

    There isn't a supported way. The danger is that if a pop3 download takes
    more than the time between downloads (i.e. a second download is attempted
    while the first is still in progress) then mail will be lost.

    Your choices would be:

    a) live with the 15 minute schedule
    b) use a 3rd party product such as popbeamer
    c) abandon the pop3 download and go to smtp

    I'd recommend c.
