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.

so, this would mean, if my sendmail finds in the users directory a .forward-file containing \rogerg, "|/usr/bin/vacation rogerg" it should normally execute the vacation program? thats what i expected, but it doesn't...so i thought, there must be more in the sendmail.cf or somewhere in cyrus....
