    imported from vb3.7.0 to xf rc2

    everything looks fine but cant start a conversation,
    when i try, i get this message:

    An unexpected database error occurred. Please try again later.
    <!-- mysqli prepare error: MYSQL server gone away -->

    i can reply to conversations tho...
    and another strange things is other members can start a conversation.

    just checked "Server Error Logs" in admincp and it says
    no errors have been logged.

    this is not a XenForo bug, I'd imagine.

    Note: i had enabled email transport method to smtp (entered google apps mail settings),
    I've just changed it to "default" option and no any more database error.

    Were you constantly getting the error before that change?

    yes, when it was set to SMTP,
    but the strangest thing is other members was sending without error.

    Might be something related to the import.

    I am unable to reproduce this on the latest, RC2, stock default, SMTP (->Google Mail) development environment.

    That sounds like the SMTP call was taking a long time, triggering MySQL's wait_timeout due to inactivity. Unfortunately, there's not really much we can do about it.
