We are running cyrus+postfix on a SuSE Linux box.  We have the following
file in:

And the ingo.script in that directory contains the following:
require "vacation";

# Blacklisted Addresses
# Vacation Message
vacation :days 1 :addresses "example at" :subject "out of
office reply" "Thanks for your email. I'm away";

We are sending mail to example at but not getting any
vacation auto reply.

We also have in /etc/services: 
sieve           2000/tcp        # Cyrus SIEVE
sieve           2000/udp        # Cyrus SIEVE

netstat -an|grep 2000 gives the following:
tcp        0      0 :::2000                 :::*

I would be grateful if anybody has any idea about what is happening.
