Hi all,
I'm facing this error:

dovecot: auth(default): vmysql: sql error[3]: MySQL server has gone away

I've been googling about this but it seems to be a resolved
issuem(back to 2005), so it should just reconnect but it does not so.
If I just restart dovecot (my IMAP server) it works OK.

I'm using vpopmail 5.4.25

Any ideas why it's not reconnecting?

Thanks you!

Mysql 5 ?

If so it may be that MySQL is closing the connection after a period of inactivity. If that's the case you need to increase the idle timeout or eliminate it completely.

We set ours at 4 days to allow for long weekends etc.
