Quantity (-QTY) command

The -QTY command specifies the number of messages that the adapter is to retrieve. In burst mode, the total number of messages retrieved by the adapter does not exceed the number specified by the -QTY command, although a single burst might return fewer messages. The -QTY command is optional. If you omit it, the default number of messages is 1.
