    Sendmail - Question about VACATION program


    I am running sendmail in a single box (Red Hat and I have created many user accounts in it. What I am trying to do is when an email is sent to a particular account, the vacation program will send an auto-reply saying that the mail account will not be read for some time.

    I have created the .vacation.db and .vacation.msg files. I have also created a .forward file for the home directory of the account that will be " on vacation"

    my .forward file is
    \my_user_name
    |"usr/bin/vacation my_user_name"

    Still, when I send an email to my_user_name, no vacation message is auto-replied.
    Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong??

    Hi,

    Does /usr/bin/vacation exist?

    If it does you can do a "vacation username" (i think) and it will prompt you for the message and set up your .forward...)
