Oh -- I think the point was "typical server hits" for a normal POP3
Usually they have settings to check mail:
every 5 minutes
every 15 minutes
So, I suggest that a POP3->PmWiki "client" be set for a minimum of 60
seconds, and a default of 300 -- no need to set a maximum.
The problem is that setting POP3->PmWiki for 60 seconds does NOT mean
that it will check your mail every 60 seconds. It will NOT check if
the last check was within 60 seconds. It will check at most as often
as people hit the website...
Patricks' PUSH->PmWiki would not be using POP3, and can be set up
with email->SMTP->pmwiki.org->mail agent->procmail->script at which
point it issues a normal browser request pointing at SOMEONE's server
that creates a post.
