Yes, looks good.

This lets gnus check for new news every 10 minutes of emacs idle time
(or something like that).  This can repair disconnects if the server
closes the connection after a certain time of inactivity.

But on the net I've read that dovecot doesn't disconnect clients.  After
some time with no activity, it contacts the clients and checks if
they're still available.

Normally, it shouldn't.  But give it a test ride...
