You try to configure a Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 client to connect to a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailbox by using a POP3 connection or an IMAP4 connection. You enter the required information and then click Test Account Settings. When you do this, the account test process is failed.
Additionally, the following error message is listed on the Errors tab in the Test Account Settings dialog box:
Log onto incoming mail server (IMAP): The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (isp).
This problem occurs because Exchange Server 2007 disconnects POP3 and IMAP4 sessions after three failed logon attempts.
