Hi derek,

Correction on step 4, it should be:

\alydio.mc, "|/usr/bin/vacation alydio.mc"

thanks,

hi derek,

It is not also working on my sendmail.

May be I overlooked some steps?

step 1. login to user
# su alydio.mc

step 2. initialize vacation db
$ vacation -i

step 3. create .vacation.msg

 From: alydio...@mydomain.com
 Subject: I am on vacation
 Delivered-By-The-Graces-Of: The Vacation program
 Precedence: bulk

 I am on vacation until.......

step 4. create .forward

\klyren, "|/usr/bin/vacation klyren"


sendmail log

Apr 20 08:21:08 MAIL sm-mta[18102]: n3K0L2Jl018092: to="|/usr/bin/vacation alydio.mc", ctladdr=<alydio...@mydomain> (1001/0), delay=00:00:05, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=prog, pri=62458, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

...nothing follows...

thanks

In the log entry above, I see:
ctladdr=<alydio...@mydomain>
I suspect this is NOT a deliverable address but that depends on how you have mydomain resolving.

Also you might want to try using a user account without a period in the name. The period may be causing a silent parsing problem for sendmail and vacation.

Thanks Odhiambo for your
time.


Actually i have a working vacation program  from freebsd ports
(/usr/ports/mail/vacation).


I only wondering why the freebsd base vacation behave differently....



I still want freebsd base vacation... the one from ports is obsolete (as
per its maintainer website) and sometime i need to edit its makefile for
it to compile....


Thanks again.






I think the base system vacation is the one that is part of
sendmail.  So using it with postfix as the MTA may be the
issue.  I have use the base vacation version flawlessly with
sendmail.

hi,


I don't know how to run it in debug mode....


I already try this one.....


#/usr/bin/vacation -d alydio.mc


but nothing happened... no logs in /var/log/message and /var/log/maillog
pertaining to vacation.




Okay. I think you need to look again at your MTA logs. Not being an
expert with Postfix, I am not sure I can help with it anyway.
