Whose fault? vacation messages bounce to postmaster.

I don't see the Reply-To in the headers that you have posted. I would 
think that this is the cause of your bounces going back to your postmaster.

I would suspect that it would be squirrelmail causing the problem, as I 
have seen posts that report that if it isn't set, then squirrelmail will 
set it to the default configuration option.
