    Default Outlook timeouts

    We have about 60 email users on our old hosted email system, and one by one I'm moving people to the new Zimbra server - so far we have maybe 10 using it. I'm trying to get people on Zimbra Desktop whenever possible but there are still holdouts using Outlook. On all users' desktops, I've noticed Outlook occasionally times out trying to Send/Receive, and it's quite annoying. I've increased the timeout to as high as it goes, but it STILL times out. Why should it time out at all when it's set to 10 minutes!?! The server is plenty powerful with plenty of RAM. I've tried increasing the maximum number of threads to 400 but that didn't help. If I want users to use our new system, it has to 'appear' that it's working properly.

    Is there some sort of performance hack I can perform?

    hi

    i got the same problem recently

    do you users connect over SSL ?

    i noticed most of the time Outlook quit the connection and you have to reconnect and accept the certificate...

    strange ?? no ??

    Default Yes

    Yes we use a self-signed SSL certificate. I actually bought 2 GoDaddy commercial certificates but every time I tried to install them (over 10 attempts) it damaged the keystore and never worked - Zimbra's instructions do NOT work in my case so I gave up. But I enabled the option so that people could connect without it as well, and it times out too. I'm beginning to wonder if it's simply a flaky protocol.

    Question It definitely sounds like a good idea

    but I cannot seem to find the option in the admin panel - where should I go to try this?

    Thanks!

    Just to ask, could people use the webmail interface instead? It would be an option at least. They'd also have access to the global address list that way too.
