Configuring the mail adapter Sender

Hi Guys, hope you are fine.

I have a doubt: is it possible to configure, how many emails the sender mail adapter takes per polling?

I have an inbox with more than 300 emails and I have a sender mail adapter configured with a 10 minutes pooling and I need to limit the number of messages or, just to have an ideia about the number of messages it takes. Does it depends of the machine or something like that?

Any kind of help is welcome... =)

Thank you

Luciana Rossan

    Hi Luciana,

    Please refer to the FetchLimit option, described in SAP Help for sender mail adapter, it matches your requirement perfectly:


    You can set this additional parameter to restrict the number of mails fetched by sender mail adapter in one polling interval.

    Sometimes the mailbox configured for the sender mail adapter contains large number of unread mails, which exceeds the average expected number of mails in one polling interval. In such a case, processing of all the unread mails in the same polling interval by sender mail adapter degrades the system performance. To avoid this, set value of this parameter to the maximum number of mails to be fetched and processed in one polling interval. The remaining mails exceeding the limit would be processed in the next polling interval.

    Please refer to the help itself if further details required:

    Hope this helps,

      Hi Greg,

      Thank you for your patiance... I tryed to use this parameter with the modulle but didn`t have success.

      So ... I think I will have to give it up or ask to the custumer to make an upgrade

      Thank you everybody.

    Hi Luciana Rossan,

    There is no standard parameter in the mail adapter to specify the number of mails to be picked.

    For your requirement, I think we need to write a adapter module and specify the number of mails to be picked up.

    Lets see what the other experts say...

      Hi Luciana,

      When the adapter polls, it checks for the number of mails and process all. It does not have any restriction.

      As Greg said, the parameter provided would be a perfect solution for your requirement.
