Thanks... I did see the entry in dovecot.conf, but it does not exactly 
explain what is does to keep Outlook from doing the idle timeouts.  More 
specifically, does this option still cause Outook to generate the 
annoying timeout messages?  Or does it somehow trick Outlook into 
thinking the connection is not idle. 

Also, does enabling this option cause any problems/error message with 
other clients?

Thanks for the prompt reply.
