Version: MDaemon Pro 13.0.5

We are doing test migrations of users from MDaemon to Office 365. The Office 365 system sets up an IMAP connection (in this case securely) and downloads all email from MDaemon.
We are noticing that the downloaded email will stop at a point (never the same point) after some time (a number of hours) reporting a failure to connect. These accounts are years old and have tens of thousands of emails in the Inbox alone.
We are looking at a possible timeout on the MDaemon server and I was wondering if there is somewhere that I should extend or disable a timeout setting.

Currently the only three areas that I think an IMAP setting like this might have an impact are:
Setup, Default/Domain Servers, Default Domain & Servers, Timeouts, IMAP sessions timeout after - 40 inactive minutes
Setup, Default/Domain Servers, Default Domain & Servers, Timeouts, Latency - 125 approx.
Setup, Default/Domain Servers, Default Domain & Servers, Sessions, Max concurrent IMAP sessions - 100

The last test stopped about 6,500 emails through a 12,000 item inbox for 4 hrs 6 mins with the error "We couldn't communicate with the server for this account". I have been looking for a 240 minutes timeout but can't see one. Obviously we could have had network issues or something else so I am just querying what settings MDaemon might have that could be impacting on this. If none, fair enough and I'll revert to Microsoft.

For such MDaemon to Office 365 migration I am not suggesting to go with any free tool and for MDaemon Outlook synchronization method. For such big migration I am suggesting to use third party tool like MDaemon Migration tool that allows you to migrate all your data from MDaemon Mail sever to new server like Outlook Exchange server, Outlook 365.

Hello! Did you get this resolved? I have the exact same problem. If I use the migration tool in Office...

While searching on Google, I have got this Mails Backup Tool which allows to take backup of emails from various online email accounts in few moments. Moreover, the tool allows user to save backup of emails to 30+ saving options.

I hope this will help you too!!
