Quit Mail and then restart it should force it to reconnect.
There's a been a bug in Mail at least since 10.7 (allegedly related to routers, DNS settings, Dropbox, 1Password or some other 3rd party application, take your pick!) whereby it won't reconnect after sleep or screensaver without a quit and restart.

For what it's worth, this is still going on and in my experience isn't related to sleep or screensaver. Restarting mail doesn't help much. Surest fix is to restart entire system, which is a pain. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.
