OUTLOOK 2003 IMAP Client closes connection to server, users need to reconnect.

Last Modified: 2013-11-12
We use Apple Xserver G5 server win Mac OS X 10.5, 4GB Ram, 3x15K Rpm RAID 5 SAS HDD, for Postfix email services (IMAP), the server is located within our office LAN (Gigabit).

Our users are using Outlook 2003 and connecting to the server using IMAP account. Periodically the Outlook 2003 IMAP client would be disconnected, even though the timeout settings is maximum (10min).

Is there any solution to overcome this disconnected client problem? A registry tweak, custom written exe?
