    I was wondering if there was a way to set the number of retries and if so if i can set it to a particular amount of time? If not it's something that i would love to see!

    Fetch 4.0 lets you specify the number of times to try. There isn't a way to specify an amount of time to try for.

    It's not (only) about an amount of time to try for (would be a nice feature, too, but is redundant), it's about adjusting the intervall(at least as far as I'm concerned). Certain servers will ban you if you're "hammering" the server, it would be really nice to set settings like that (number of retries and number of seconds between the retries) on a per server basis.

    Thanks for the clarification; I'll see what I can do.

    I agree w Sali.

    There needs to be a setting to retry a busy server every 120sec. This exists in the program Transmit.

    Such a setting was added to Fetch 4.0 at the last minute. You can access it with the SetSecretOptions AppleScript that comes with Fetch, or with a simple script:

    tell application "Fetch 4.0"
    set retry delay to 120 -- sets delay to 120 seconds
    end tell

    Thanks,
