It can't be done with imapd.conf, but it would be fairly easy to add 
such options.  In the interim, the easiest way to disable them would be 
to go into sieve/interp.c and edit sieve_register_reject() and 
sieve_register_vacation() and comment out the lines where sieve->interp 
and sieve->vacation get set.  This will disable these actions in both 
timsieved and lmtpd.
