Good hint - I increased the timeout to two minutes, and checked the
process in Wireshark. Exchange needs 41 seconds (!!!) to acknowledge
the transfer of this ~2MByte message.
Maybe we should make the IMAP timeout either configurable, or use a
"smart guess", like base_timeout + xfer_size * stretch, or something
like that? I know Exchange is *really* crap, but unfortunately I'm
forced to use it at work...
I had a similar problem with an imap server that responded very slow to
search requests. Current SVN source will pop up a question box whether
to abort an operation that takes too long time... Is that an acceptable
solution? It probably needs some polishing but the basic idea works.
