Subject Re: Time out Setting [commons NET/FTP]
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2009 06:25:20 GMT

Have you tried calling the FTPClient's setSoTimeout(timeout) method after
calling its connect() method?

Then, when your trying to retrieve the file (using the retrieveFile method),
you can catch the IOException and send out your email.
