in reply to IMAPClient Fails when storing large amount of messages in deleted

It's more likely that it's timing out while waiting for the imap server to complete the operation. Instead of sending a mass delete of a bunch of messages, break it up into chunks. Something along the lines of:

my $msgset = Mail::IMAPClient::MessageSet->new( $imap->messages ); my $msg_ids = []; if ( $msgset ) { $msg_ids = $msgset->unfold; } while ( my @cur_block = splice @$msg_ids, 0, 500 ) { # delete the current block of messages... }

Untested of course. Hopefully that gets you going in the right direction.
