number of email threads

Thursday, November 29, 2018


Our SpiraTeam uses a popular public email service send email by SMTP.  Recently the company hosting this SMPT server announced they would no longer accept more than 3 simultaneous connections from a client.  Judging by all the errors in the SpiraTeam logs, SpiraTeam uses more than 3 simultaneous threads to connect frequently.

I can't find anything in the SpiraTeam configuration where the max number of email-sending threads can be set.  Is there some way to set that more secretly?  A registry key, or config file option?

Hi Kevin,

Unfortunately we don't have such a setting, it would also degrade performance in SpiraTeam most likely by backing up the send requests. I would suggest reducing the number of notifications you have configured to send, switching SMTP provider, or switching to our cloud solution which uses our own email servers instead.
