Hello narendrabhuri,

I am not sure of your question.  Your IMAP data is closed out when you close Outlook.  If you open Outlook offline, you cannot see the IMAP data.  You need to copy the IMAP data to the local folders for you to see your IMAP data offline.

IMAP keeps the data on a temporary IMAP PST file when online. When you close Outlook, you close the IMAP PST file.

Hope this helps!

IMAP connection should not turn off while you are online and Outlook opened. There could be something wrong with the IMAP server.

narendrabhuri,

Check with your IMAP admin to determine if there is something wrong with IMAP servers.

Are you on a slow internet connection?  If so, and you've increased the Timeout to the max then you will need to store some of your messages locally (in a pst) to avoid this error.

Here's an example method:-

You would then Move messages from your IMAP Inbox, etc. to these Local Folders.

For the record, I am normally trying to wean people off using PST's, because there is a size limit to them of 2Gb (in this case), and they do have a tendency to corrupt, but in your case it seems that the number/size of messages in your IMAP message store at your provider is too much for Outlook to handle.

Another alternative is for you to try Thunderbird, which can be downloaded for free from the www.mozilla.com website.  This can connect to IMAP message stores, and may be a bit more tolerant.

In fact, I would suggest trying Thunderbird first, before trying the Local Folders option.  If Thunderbird also gives up, then you have lost nothing - your messages are still in the remote message store (make sure of course that you choose IMAP for mailbox type).
