Added the facility to reduce the Timeout period for an email. Where providers such as Gmail may take over a minute to respond to an email request, on occassion this cause PCSchool to return a “Socket Time Out” error. This could be remedied by extending the timeout allowing the server time to respond. An alternate approach was to reduce the timeout, this significantly enhancing the throughput of the email module, and having the software assume that the email was successfully handled by the server. A new check box has been added to email settings to “Ignore Timeout” so as not to report socket errors. Curric Ver  2012.2.0.50
