For about a 15 minutes period users couldn't receive emails - emails
were bouncing back saying the users did not exist. We traced the problem
to the dovecot log where we saw this:
Sep 15 12:16:23 auth-worker: Error: vmysql: sql error: Table
'vpopmail.users' doesn't exist
Sep 15 12:16:23 auth-worker: Error: Attempting to rebuild connection to
Sep 15 12:16:23 auth-worker: Error: vmysql: connection rebuild failed:
Table 'vpopmail.users' doesn't exist
Shortly thereafter dovecot was able to connect and emails began being
received normally again.
Any thoughts on how to prevent this in the future? Should we raise the
number of mysql connections - we're using the default.
