If the remote end disconnects, movemail will surely exit.  There is no
way NOT to detect this condition.  On the other hand, what you describe
means that the connection remains established, but the remote party stopped
replying.  That could happen, e.g., if the underlying transport
had initiated reconnection during the session, and received another IP
address.  There's no other way to handle this, other than timing out.
