Try and increase the timeouts for the clients.
Are you using Outlook on the clients?
There are some workarounds for outlook in Dovecot.
Yes some of my clients uses outlook.
 When i check rpm -qa|grep dovecot, it says dovecot-0.99.11-2.EL4.1, 
so it means it uses .99 version.But when i check the dovecot.conf , at 
 the beginning of the file

 ## Dovecot 1.0 configuration file

 with this on the file

 # outlook-pop3-no-nuls
#client_workarounds =
client_workarounds = outlook-pop3-no-nuls
should i use this one ? and what does this config actually do so that i could
explain to them the erros.
