Question

Can I use DHCP to dynamically allocate an IP address to the machine running GMS Mail.

Answer

When our clients try to get mail the server disconnects all of a sudden. The POP log says:

15:32:08 F 1033 399 ReadFromStream Timeout on selecting a socket
15:32:08 F 1035 399 dropped connection

DHCP had been started on the mailserver causing the server to check for new routers and gateways every two minutes, this of course meant that the client was losing the ID of the mailserver and thus the connection was dropping.
