If you don't want to use sieve for vacation (which I recommend, we 
switched from the old-style vacation to sieve's vacation and everyone is 
much happier), the normal setup is to set the user's .forward file to 
deliver to the vacation program.  There is nothing in cyrus for vacation 
in that case, since it is handled before cyrus gets the message for 
delivery.  See the documenation for vacation.
