This sounds like it's fetching a message which doesn't exist anymore. 
0.99 Dovecot handles it by giving back an error message and not 
returning anything about the message. I guess this is what happens 

1.0-tests will try to reply to the request if the information about the 
message is still in available (in memory/cache). If it's not, it 
disconnects the client. The bad thing with that is that I'm not sure if 
Outlook will automatically reconnect back to server.

If mails aren't actually being deleted, I guess it's something else..
