Imap speed

May 20 '13 at 22:47

Currently I'm using the PHP IMAP libs to connect and download full imap accounts.

Current workflow;

Are there any ways to speed up the background process of downloading (this is taking the most time) the e-mails. It must be able to handle big accounts (>25GB, 50k messages). Currently it is just going at about 250 - 1k e-mails per hour.

I'm hoping someone could give me any tips about how to speed this process up.

Currently getting pretty much the same results @ 2 servers (1 x Amazon Ec2 with RDS and 1x a VPS with local mysql db).
