This article will guide you on steps to resolve #IMAP #server closed the connection #0x800cccdd #Outlook #error. We also saw that the reason for this error is an incorrect IMAP settings. 

A server connection #timeout means that a server is taking too long to reply to a data request made from another device. Timeouts are not a reply message: they show up when there isn't a reply and a server request is not fulfilled in a predetermined length of time.

Sometimes Outlook users get the 0x800CCCDD error ('Your IMAP server closed the connection') whenever they send or receive #emails via an IMAP account. This particular error code is signaling that the Send/Receive feature has failed.

To stop Outlook from timing out:

1. Click Outlook 2010's "File" tab.

2. Double-click an email account's name in the list to edit its settings.

3. Click the "Advanced" tab on the settings window, then locate the Server Timeouts section.
