Thanks Aki! I'm looking at it now and despite identical MySQL 5.7.26
versions on both systems, it seems Dovecot is using libmysqlclient 5.6.37.
Dovecot seems to be using the older libmysqlclient.so.18.1.0 (5.6.37)
from mysql-community-libs-compat 5.7.26 instead of the newer
libmysqlclient.so.20.3.13 (5.7.26) from mysql-community-libs 5.7.26.
If I try to remove the libs-compat, yum also insists on removing
dovecot-mysql, so it depends on the older libmysqlclient and ignores the
I don't suspect I can do anything on my end to force the Dovecot CentOS
package to use the non-compat libmysqlclient?
