The scenario is that bounces weren't being fetched and there is now a major backlog, and that running 50 every cron is too slow to make real progress.

Here is one approach - modify /civicrm/CRM/Utils/Mail/EmailProcessor.php

so it has multiple iterations specified (in example below = 40) then run via

drush cvapi Job.fetch_bounces

around line 178

// process fifty at a time, CRM-4002 $iterations = 0; while ($iterations < 40 && $mails = $store->fetchNext(MAIL_BATCH_SIZE)) { $iterations++; print("\nBeginning iteration $iterations "); foreach ($mails as $key => $mail) { print(".");
