Disabling the IMAP server colsed connection message when using IMAP with Outlook- How?
Posted on 2006-10-28
I have jsut recommended an office move over to using IMAP email as they all like to be able to check each others email accounts. The have a peer to peer network of three PC's.
The problem is that since I have moved to Outlook they always get the following message,
"your IMAP server has closed the connection. This may occur if you have left the connection idle for too long."
While this is not a major problem, it is very infuriating. I know it will drive the stuff nuts unless I do something about it and they will want to revert back to the old way of doing things (POP3 based).
I was thinking sureley there must be a way of preventing this message? Outlook just does not seem to support IMAP very well but sureley this annoyance can be solved. Does anyone know how?
Note that the Outlook clients are Outlook 2003, Outlook 2002 and Outlook2000. For now if we concentrate on Outlook 2003 and then I will work on te hopefully similar procedure for the older clients.
Thanks in advance.
