Description Sebb 2014-04-18 11:17:25 UTC
The MailReaderSampler currently sets some properties starting with "mail.pop3s." in order to support certain optional security features.

There are two possible issues with this:
1) AFAICT these are not official properties, so may not be supported in all implementations; they may only apply to the Sun/Oracle implementation

2) the same "mail.pop3s.*" properties are used for both pop3s and imaps - that seems wrong.


1) more research is needed to establish whether there is a standard API way to provide these features.

2) Fixing the property names so they agree with the protocol is trivial.
If a generic solution (1) is not found, this would at least be the first step to take.

Not yet tested whether the Oracle IMAPS implementation falls back to using the pop3s properties; that seems very unlikely. I assume the options have never been tested fully with IMAPS.

2) Experimentation with timeouts shows the property names must agree with the protocol, so always using pop3s is wrong.
