CORRECTION: I meant to refer to RFC 1939, not 1938.

I have looked in RFC 2821 but not yet found any explicit text which tells what to do in this case. But, for a comparison, RFC 1938 (dealing with POP3) Section 3 says:

   A POP3 server MAY have an inactivity autologout timer.  ...
  When the timer expires, the session does NOT enter
   the UPDATE state--the server should close the TCP connection without
   removing any messages or sending any response to the client.
