Short Description: determines how frequently a checkfro new mail is performed


The Domino mail server by default checks every connected user once per minute for new mail and then notifies those users that have new mail. Other status, like refreshed views, use this same notification method. The IOCP_Async_Notification_Poll_Time setting in NOTES.INI determines how frequently this check is performed. Setting this parameter to greater than 60 (seconds) will reduce demands on the CPU and potentially improve server performance.

Having this setting absent or set to less than 600 (10 minutes) can result in unnecessary server activity resulting in reduced performance.

This function should not be confused with client polling for new mail, which is set in the User Preferences of the Notes client.


Set IOCP_Async_Notification_Poll_Time to 600 or higher.

Default value:
When this setting is absent, it is equivalent to setting the option to 60 (i.e. 60 seconds).



UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
