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? :) Jon Coulter [EMAIL PROTECTED] -----Original Message----- From: Phil Dibowitz [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Monday, August 26, 2002 6:57 PM To: vchkpw 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 possible, and maybe tell me how to do it, or point me to a link if it's documented already...
