I don't know what `.mailboxlist` is, but maybe it's a candidate for 
something you should unsubscribe using “Edit Subscriptions” in the 
IMAP account editor. I won't fix this issue though.

It sounds like this is an issue with the IMAP interface to Exchange. 
MailMate has authenticated with the IMAP server, but the server has lost 
its connection to the back end (Exchange). If Spark supports Exchange 
natively then that might explain the difference in behavior.

It might be that MailMate could/should retry automatically before 
reporting an error. I can learn more with a set of logs Open the 
Activity Viewer (⌥⌘0) and keep it open during a sequence of what you 
describe (including before/after sleeping). Then use “Help ▸ Send 
Server Logs” to send me the results.

Thanks in advance.
