email module - automatic check / biff
« on: August 18, 2009, 04:12:21 pm »
There should be a way to automatically check / biff email messages from remote server every X time.
Wondering if the PHP file currently performing that task could be called from a simple cronjob running in the background.

Thanks,
Nuno.

Hi,

May it be possible you missed something in the administration part? There is a part "Cronjobs", no?

I did, in deed :)

There's a setting under Cron Events to check mail messages.
Gonna try it out,

Thanks.

I think the cron-mail-check doesn't seem to work very well .. No idea how this comes ... Can you tell me if yours does work well?

Was about to report on that.
Nope. In my case, enabling email checks doesn't work at all :(
Probably a system cronjob has to be set. I just don't know which file to execute.

Hi,

Indeed, a system-cron is needed.
More info:

I have tweaked my crontab to run cron.php every 5 minutes.
Fetching email messages still fails at random, though it is working as it should most of the time.
Thanks for the URL!
