I am trying to get the vacation mail auto-responder working and am not
having much luck.
I am running RH7.1/2.4 kernel and downloaded and installed
vacation-1.2.5-1.i386.rpm from RH. There is a
link from /etc/smrsh/vacation to /usr/bin/vacation.
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jun 20 14:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 60 root root 8192 Jun 20 07:53 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Jun 20 14:06 vacation ->
Running the vacation program yeilds .forward, .vacation.msg and
.vacation.db in user directory.
\username, "|/usr/bin/vacation username"
Mail log yeilds:
Jun 20 14:36:44 machine sendmail: f5KLaiE26253:
Jun 20 14:36:44 axiom sendmail: f5KLaiE26253:
to="|/usr/bin/vacation username", ctladdr=username (651/651),
delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=prog, pri=60985, dsn=2.0.0,
Jun 20 14:36:44 machine sendmail: f5KLaiE26253: to=\username,
delay=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=local, pri=60985, dsn=2.0.0,
when a message is sent to the user of the machine. Looks like procmail
is handing off to /usr/bin/vacation.
The message is not replied to. Manually configured .forward files to
forward or mail to other addersses
and .procmailrc vacation files work just fine. It would seem something
is not right with /usr/bin/vacation.
Does anyone have any suggestions. My ultimate goal is to get the
vacation plugin of SquirrelMail working,
which requires the vacation rpm.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
