The timeout option specifies a timeout; the exact meaning of this timeout depends upon the component for which it is set.

Use with indexer

The timeout Indexer option specifies the timeout in seconds for read and write operations between the IMAP server and ISS.


The default value in this context is: 30


See also:

Use with metermaid_client

The timeout  MeterMaid Client option, (metermaid_client.timeout in Unified Configuration, or metermaid.mtaclient.readwait in legacy configuration), specifies how long in seconds a MeterMaid client will wait for communication with MeterMaid.


The default value in this context is: 10


See also:

Use with pmxbl

RESTRICTED: The timeout PureMessage IP Blocker option, (pmxbl.timeout in Unified Configuration, or pmxbl.readwait in legacy configuration), specifies how long in seconds to wait for communication with the PureMessage IP Blocker service. The default is 10; attempting to set a value greater than 60 will result in the default value of 10 being used.


The default value in this context is: 10

Use with msprobe

The msprobe.timeout msprobe option specifies the time in seconds that msprobe waits after sending a request that goes unfulfilled before restarting a service. This is a general default for msprobe's probes; a service-specific probe can set its own, override timeout via the msprobe.probe:service-name.timeout option.

Attempting to set a value of 0 will result in the value 30 (the default) getting used as the msprobe default.


The default value in this context is: 30

Use with autorestart

The timeout Autorestart option, (autorestart.timeout in Unified Configuration, or local.autorestart.timeout in legacy configuration), specifies a failure retry time-out, in seconds. The default is 600 seconds. If a server fails more than once during this designated period of time, then the system will stop trying to restart this server. If this happens in an HA system, Messaging Server is shutdown and a failover to the other system occurs. The value (set in seconds) should be set to a period value longer than the msprobe interval. (See the schedule.task:msprobe.crontab option setting for msprobe's schedule).


The default value in this context is: 600


See also:

Use with the MMP

The timeout MMP option specifies the session timeout in seconds. To be standards-compliant, the value of this option must not be set lower than 1800 seconds (30 minutes) for IMAP, 600 seconds (10 minutes) for POP or SMTP.

See also the options for the IMAP server, POP server, and SMTP SUBMIT server: imap.idletimeout, pop.idletimeout, and the SMTP SUBMIT server's various *_TIME channel-specific options.


The default value in this context is: 1800


See also:

Use with the IMAP proxy

The timeout IMAP Proxy option specifies the session timeout in seconds. To be standards-compliant, the value of this option must not be set lower than 1800 seconds (30 minutes) for IMAP.

See also the IMAP server's own idletimeout option.


The default value in this context is: 1800


See also:

Use with the POP proxy

The timeout POP Proxy option specifies the session timeout in seconds. To be standards-compliant, the value of this option must not be set lower than 600 seconds (10 minutes) for POP.

See also the POP server's own idletimeout option.


The default value in this context is: 1800
