Advance Settings

The software has advanced options for Mailbox Thread Count and Item thread count. The advanced setting option comes in handy to increase the processing speed effectively. Mailbox Thread Count: This option allows you to run multiple threads for each backup job. Item Thread Count: With this option, users can run multiple threads for each IMAP mailbox.


Timeout Duration

One of the most common issues when using IMAP backup tools is they can take a lot of time to complete.

But with the Shoviv IMAP backup and restore tool, users can set a time period to process an item, and if any item takes longer than that, it will skip that item and move to the next.


Bad item count

This option allows you to specify the number of failed items before the software stops the backup process for that particular mailbox. In layman's terms, if you set the Bad item count to 100, the software will stop backing up that particular mailbox after 100 unsuccessful mailbox items and will process the next mailbox.
