That's correct behaviour to send bounces to the envelope From.

1. Wrong sender's return address when using vacation for auto-reply


I've just set up vacation for usue as some of our people are going
away for a few weeks and I run into a problem.

When the system replies "User away, etc..." it adds the hostname to
the domain name in the user's email address..


Help, so little time is allowed to work on problems in this place..
I'm sure it must be a very easy switch in the sendmail conf files, if
you knwo it well, but I have no time to experiment too much. :(

Thank you much if you can help.
