A simple thing most people can do to keep their connectin from timing out is set their email client to check the server every x/2 minutes, where x is the timeout period. By the way this timeout is usually set on the server for security reasons, to keep a line from being left open, usually on a dialup connection. There isn't much sense for it othersie, unless the machine is heavily loaded and they are trying to detach unused sessions, Or it could be settings left in default positions by people who do not even realize they are set that way.
