Re: [Evolution] imap error message is annoying

the IMAP spec also guarentees that the server will not disconnect the
client until at LEAST 30 minutes of inactivity

so 10 minutes == broken server

and if it really is disconnecting after 10 minutes no matter what (even
if there is activity), then that just means the server is even more

That is an excellent suggestion, but unfortunately that was the first
thing I tried.  The server disconnects after ~10 minutes regardless of
whether or not you are idle.  Thus changing the mail checking interval
doesn't have any effect.

How many minutes did you set Evolution for the polling interval anyway?

If it still disconnects even if you set Evolution to retrieve new mail
automatically at at time lesser than 10 minutes (let's say every 5
minutes) or if you check it manually every 10 minutes, then the mail
server must be broken.
