qmail pop3d timeout
How do I change the default 20 minute timeout for pop3d? I have lots of iPhones that seem to hang
onto the connections and would like to decrease the 20 minute timeout.

Thanks.

Looks like it's hardcoded in qmail-pop3d.c. I don't know if there is
a patch floating around for this or not. It wouldn't be hard to get
the timeout value from an environment variable instead of using the
hardcoded value of 1200 seconds.
