    Sendmail + Vacation Problems or alternative...

    Hi everyone, I've been having this problem with the vacation program and sendmail, the OS is Red Hat Enterprise 3, I have Webmin installed and I'm using the program vacation to generate auto-replys, but when I send mail to someone who has activated the service through webmin the following mail is received:

    The original message was received at Fri, 5 May 2006 09:25:08 -0400
    from [172.**.**.21]

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----

    All the files are correctly generated .forward .vacation.db, etc.

    And if you please know some alternative to vacation which I can use I could really appreciate your info.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you ever get a solution for this. I got the same problem and would appreciate if you could share the solution with me if you had found the issue.

    Best wishes,

    Please start a new thread describing your computer problem because this one is over one year old already and as such is not as likely to be answered.

    Sorry for any inconvenience...
