This may not be the answer you're looking for, but based on anecdotal 
evidence I'd say it's an Outlook bug. Here's what you could try if you're 

mkdir the directory /var/lib/imap/log/username as user cyrus, replacing 
"username" with one of the users that have the problems. Wait until the 
problem occurs. Look at the log files created. If you can correlate a 
sequence of IMAP commands to the problem, it way give a hint what's wrong.

And to verify that it's an Outlook issue you could switch the affected 
users to a different client, at least temporarily.
