Similar to short lasting connections, I guess :-)

But any command restarts this timeout. A simple NOOP is sufficient. This 
means, that the server is not allowed to explicitly terminate the 
connection as long as the client is pinging him. Regardless of the fact 
that there is not actually mail traffic happening.

Maybe such idle connections could be handled by a special thread and if 
any real work is starting on a connection, this one is handed over to a 
worker thread?
