Create a .qmail-<user> file for that person with the auto-responder line
in it (I'm not sure off the top of my head what that syntax is). If
there is a .qmail-<user> file in the domain's home directory, then
vpopmail (well qmail, really) ignores the 'real' user, and does whatever
the .qmail file says to do (so it will send the auto respond, and then
never save the message anywhere).

Alternately, you can put this in the
~vpopmail/domains/domain.ext/user/.qmail file:

| /bin/cat /dev/null

This will cause cat to cat /dev/null (which takes no fileio cpu, since
its null and empty), and exits with a clean 0, telling vpopmail that
everything went okay.

There are many ways to do many things, isn't qmail/vpopmail great? :)

Subject: [vchkpw] Vacation Messages *and* redirect

Hey all,

I'd like to have a user whose email is redirected to /dev/null, and who
has an 
  auto-responder (vacation message).

I'm not quite sure how to go about this, can someone tell me if it's
and maybe tell me how to do it, or point me to a link if it's documented
