IMAP Probe Properties

Probe Interval

File Configuration field:
nSleepTime
Description:
This is the interval of the probe. After each probe, the Service will sleep for the configured probe interval. This period is specified in milliseconds.

Timeout Limit

File Configuration field:
nTimeOutLimit
Description:
The amount of time (in milliseconds) the remote system is expected to answer in. If no response is received within this period, the probe fails and an event is generated. The default value of 1000 milliseconds is a proper value for most well connected networks. If the probe runs against a heavily loaded system and/or slow network link, the amount must be adjusted accordingly.

Also generate an event if IMAP Probe was successful

File Configuration field:
nGenerateOnSuccess
Description:
When checked, an event is generated every time. If unchecked, it is generated only when the IMAP probe fails. The most common option is to leave it unchecked to catch events upon a failed IMAP probe.

IMAP Server

File Configuration field:
szIMAPServer
Description:
Either the IP address or resolvable host name of the IMAP server, the IMAP probe is to be run against. You can either use an IPv4, an IPv6 Address or a Hostname that resolves to an IPv4 or IPv6 Address. Please note that specifying a host name can cause the IMAP probe to fail if DNS name resolution fails (for example due to a failing DNS server). To avoid this, specify an IP address.

IMAP Port

File Configuration field:
nIMAPPort

Description:

This port is to be probed. Please see your server’s reference for the actual value to use. For example, mail servers typically listen to port 25 and web servers to 80.
