When you use an IMAP4 client or a POP3 client to connect the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Client Access server (CAS) role to your mailbox, the IMAP4 or POP3 worker process may stop responding on the CAS role. This is true if your mailbox is hosted on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 back-end server. This problem prevents IMAP4 and POP3 clients from retrieving messages. When this problem occurs, the following events are logged in the Application event logs:
Note The POP3 service logs similar events on the Exchange 2007 CAS
This issue occurs when the CalendarItemRetrievalOption option on the Exchange 2007 CAS role is set to InternetUrl or intranetUrl.

Then, the exception occurs, and the CAS role does not correctly handle the exception.
