Retry intervals in the SMTP outgoing queue
The Outgoing queue for sent mails from the Icewarp Mail Server is controlled by:
The first attempt at delivery is always just after the message enters the queue.
The default retry intervals (if no interval.dat file exists) are as follows:
After the 8th retry, the same retry interval will be used until the undeliverable after (Days) threshold is reached (Set in Main Menu > Mail tab > General)
The delivery reports can also be changed in Main Menu > Mail tab > General . Here you can also set the "Undeliverable after" and the "Warning after" values.
Note that for certain "immediate" errors these retry values are ignored and Icewarp retries after 6 hours. If this retry fails a message is sent to the sender informing him of the problem but Icewarp keeps retrying for 4 days. If the message still cannot be sent, the sender is informed.
