    Default html session timeout

    I have a user that just lost a very important email when his session timed out. He was revewing/editing the email and when he went to click send, he got the login screen. The details of his timeout policy are:

    Admin conosle auth token lifetime = 12 hours
    auth token lifetime = 2 days
    session idle timeout = 0 days

    I'm assuming 0 days for the session idle timeout means no timeout is set, correct?

    Also, is it possible to set things so that a draft is auto-saved prior to the timeout blowing everything away?

    Default

    You're correct about the session idle time. But by default drafts are saved every 30 seconds (check the COS for your settings), so saving it again right before a timeout seems a bit useless.

    Only ways I can think of losing a session like that is:
    - when another session was started on the same browser
    - when the browser history+cache is cleared
    - when session is killed on server by admin
