    I have done a variety of IMAP mailbox migrations lately and Microsoft Outlook has been giving me some consistent grief.

    Any time I move a large mailbox (1000-2000+ MB) Microsoft Outlook hangs and requires that the profile be deleted and recreated.

    No server setting or other configuration changes were required for these mailbox moves.

    Does anyone know of a way to make this more transparent for customers so that Microsoft Outlook can handle a behind the scenes email migration better?

    Other mail programs such as Mozilla Thunderbird don't seem to have a problem with a large IMAP mailbox moves to a new server.
