maxiumum number of connections exceeded

Since installing em client recently on a windows 10 laptop i frequently get a pop up box saying “"server says unavailable maximum number of connection from  user  ip exceeded 10”

I often have to click on OK numerous times before it disappears. 

Can this be corrected in the settings?

Many thanks.

 Hi Chris,

Is this for a Gmail address?

If you sync with Gmail - don’t set the time shorter than 10 min.

Quote: Step 2: Try these troubleshooting steps.
Make sure your mail app isn’t set to check for new email too frequently.
  If your mail app checks for new messages more than once every 10 minutes, 
the app’s access to your account could be blocked
“Too many simultaneous connections” error

Source: Use IMAP to check Gmail on other email clients

Other mail providers and servers may give a different message.
It may mean that your polling interval is set too short or too frequent.

Try changing it via Menu/Tools/General/General > Synchronization
