To differentiate between settings that apply all accounts or settings that only apply to the primary account, each property offers a primary-only alternative by appending the primary. suffix to properties' common prefix. This behavior applies to both - 'smtp.properties' and 'imap.properties'.



In case if 'imap.properties' the common com.openexchange.imap. prefix may be extended by primary. suffix to distinguish between general and primary-only settings.

E.g. it is possible to specify two properties like:
com.openexchange.imap.imapTimeout=50000
com.openexchange.imap.primary.imapTimeout=20000

This will lead to a read timeout of 50sec for all IMAP accounts, but the primary IMAP account having a read timeout of 20sec.



In case if 'smtp.properties' the common com.openexchange.smtp. prefix may be extended by primary. suffix to distinguish between general and primary-only settings.

E.g. it is possible to specify two properties like:
com.openexchange.smtp.smtpTimeout=50000
com.openexchange.smtp.primary.smtpTimeout=20000

This will lead to a read timeout of 50sec for all SMTP accounts, but the primary SMTP account having a read timeout of 20sec.
