It doesn't matter who's fault it is. I run Dovecot with mysql auth and
it does the same..
the idea is that mysql has a timeout for connections so, after a period
of inactivity it closes the connection.
I don't know if Dovecot uses what the developers from mysql propose:
if mysql_ping != ok then reconnect
I didn't have time to browse the sources.
The lazy work-around I made is modifying the pop3/imap monitor of mon
and every 15 min, mon logs into dovecot
with a test account :)
It's the same problem with amavis but that's not necesarly amavis's
fault but the DBI people.
PS: I run :
Description: An IMAP and POP3 server written with security
primarily in mind
Description: A fast, multi-threaded, multi-user SQL
maybe using pam_mysql would solve this issue..
