Analysis: Limiting User Login
- Some clients still login too frequently to check their mail
- Require that at least X minutes elapse before you allow updating of index
- Tune X for pain threshold of your users
We have some clients that log in as frequently as once every five seconds to check their mail. Obviously, this is just too often. But what is a more reasonable number?
We believe that it is reasonable to insist that users wait at least five minutes between login attempts, and since we donít really want to refuse their login, we instead choose to be careful what we tell them and how, and in what timeframe.
