Send HEARBEATS during IDLE
--------------------------

                 Key: IMAP-272
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IMAP-272
             Project: JAMES Imap
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Protocol
    Affects Versions: 0.2-M1
            Reporter: Norman Maurer
            Assignee: Norman Maurer
             Fix For: 0.2


We should send "HEARTBEATS" when are in IDLE-state as outlook express/2000/2007 
are not reissue the IDLE command every 29 minutes to don't timeout. To make it 
worst after they reconnect they don't register to IDLE again which will prevent 
outlook to receive any new email until the user clicks on receive button.

Dovecot/Cyrus implement workarounds for this.
