I assume server contains "mailserver:110".

You can set up some diagnostics.  After each socket command, log 
the result, the sysError, and the openSockets to a field.  Make 
handlers for socketError and socketClosed and log those calls, 
too.  You might as well log the data from read while you are at it.

This can give you a "heads up" that might indicate the problem or 
provide details to send to the list.
