Is it timing out after 30 minutes or more of inactivity? IMAP servers typically will disconnect a session that has been inactive for that length of time. Or is the problem that you can't re-connect following a timeout?

Following up on my previous comment...

In my own experience with Gmail and IMAP IDLE I have not found that Gmail times out an idling connection after 30 minutes. As a test I started an idling connection an hour ago and it is still connected.

So your problem may lie elsewhere. Could it be a network component like a firewall or some other device is timing you out? Do the timeouts happen after the same length of time each time or are they random?
